Peterborough boss Gary Johnson has begun talks with on-trial defender Franck Queudrue over the possibility of a contract at London Road.

The former Birmingham defender played 45 minutes of last weekend's 3-1 friendly win over Rushden, but was not named in the squad for Tuesday's 4-1 defeat at Gillingham.

When asked if the two parties had begun talking about a potential deal, Johnson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "We have. We knew that when he came to us that he had a date with a Greek club that he promised that he would go over and talk to them. He promised us that he would come back and talk to us before he makes any decisions."

Johnson added: "He enjoyed playing in our team the other night, or the last couple of games. I think he sees the dressing room is strong.

"We all know there's still a lot to do of course and league games are a much different kettle of fish. But we are on the right lines and so hopefully, if a quality player like Franck, if you can get the terms done and we can take him then fantastic.

"But if not, there's nothing we can do about that, we move on and we work with what we've got."
