Peterborough director of football Barry Fry has confirmed the club are close to securing the loan signings of West Brom forward Reuben Reid and Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore.

Reid has struggled to find regular football at The Hawthorns since signing from Rotherham in the summer while Fry finalised the Livermore move after Saturday`s 4-0 FA Cup defeat at White Hart Lane.

Fry told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph: "Reuben is a young player who just wants to play football. He's not getting that opportunity at West Brom so he's raring to go with us. Harry Redknapp rates Jake very highly and he will give us a bit of presence in midfield."

He added: "Reuben would have joined us before the Spurs game but West Brom needed him at the weekend because of a suspension."

"We also hope to have three more new arrivals confirmed by the weekend. They will all be loan deals apart from an Irish lad who is one for the future."
