Peterborough have signed Celtic youngster Josh Thompson on a one-year loan deal, subject to international clearance.

The defender spent time with Rochdale on loan last season where he played 12 games for the League One side, and will be available for Peterborough for their next Championship match at Blackpool.

"Josh is a good size and has a lot of potential," manager Darren Ferguson told Posh's official website.

"We had a look at him before he joined Celtic and I am delighted to now get him on board for the rest of the season.

"We now have four centre-backs and that competition for places is what I was after.

"I hope that is the first of a couple of signings before the end of the month."
