Jermaine Anderson: Highly-rated Peterborough midfielder

A host of Premier League and Championship clubs are tracking in-form Peterborough midfielder Jermaine Anderson, sources have told

Anderson’s recent performances have alerted a number of clubs higher up the football pyramid with the all-action midfielder regarded as one of the best young talents in the country.

The 19-year-old has scored five goals in his last four games for Peterborough, including a brace and a man-of-the-match performance against Crewe at the weekend.

Scouts from Premier League and Championship have been flocking to London Road this season to cast an eye over former Arsenal youngster Anderson.

Peterborough boss Graham Westley is a big fan of Anderson and believes the former England Under-18 international can go onto to play for the England senior side.

Anderson has a long-term contract with Posh so the club would not allow the player to leave on the cheap should any make official bids when the transfer window reopens in January.

Peterborough are reluctant to lose Anderson as they look to mount a bid for promotion to the Championship, but are bracing themselves for interest in the player in the New Year.
