Several clubs are hoping to land Manchester United youngster Oliver Norwood on loan according to skysports.com.
The 20-year-old midfielder enjoyed a successful loan spell at Scunthorpe United during the first half of the 2011-12 campaign, making 19 appearances for the Iron.
However, the Northern Ireland international would benefit from further first-team experience away from Manchester United in a bid to continue his development.
Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson hopes to have an advantage over Coventry and MK Dons by using his family connection to bring Norwood to London Road for the remainder of the season.
If successful, the youngster would follow the likes of Ryan Tunnicliffe in swapping his Manchester United reserve team role for regular first-team action in England's second-tier with the Posh.
