Florent Cuvelier Signs On Loan At Posh

Florent Cuvelier Signs On Loan At Posh


Peterborough United have strengthened their squad ahead of the loan transfer window shutting by signing a young Belgian Under 21 on-loan from Stoke City.

Florent Cuvelier has signed on the dotted line and will be at London Road until the end of the season.

The midfielder has yet to make an appearance for his parent club but did spend time on loan at Walsall last season where he made 18 appearances for the League One outfit scoring four goals.

He returned to Walsall again at the start of this season where he played 14 matches scoring two goals.

This will be his first experience of life in the Championship and joins fellow midfielders Davide Petrucci and Alex Pritchard who are both on-loan from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Cuvelier has obvious potential as he was in demand when he left Portsmouths youth team in 2010. Manchester City, Spurs and Fulham were all after the youngsters signature but Stoke City won the race to sign the Belgium International.

The 20-year-old has represented his country at every level from Under 16 right up to Under 21 level. He has so far appeared for Belgium at the different levels on 48 occasions scoring two goals.

Cuvelier, who will wear the number 38 shirt for Posh, is happy to be at Posh but was surprised at how quick it happened as he told the official Posh website: 'It happened very quickly, but I am really pleased to be at a big club like Peterborough. I have been playing with Walsall and I felt the time was right to play in the Championship and I am really happy to be here.'

Posh boss Darren Ferguson was delighted to bring the youngster on board after the continued injury front that has affected fellow midfield loanees Petrucci and Pritchard.

Fergie said: 'He is a very good technical player, he can play anywhere in midfield, he is two-footed and I am pleased to have him here. He has been with Walsall this season and did very well and he has been on the radar.

'We thought we could perhaps do something for next season, but obviously it has been accelerated because I have injuries to Davide Petrucci and Alex Pritchard, so that has made my mind up. I have spoken to Tony Pulis and thank you to him for allowing us to get it done.'

Fergie continued: 'He wanted to come here, he plays football the right way and I believe we will suit each other. He will go straight into the squad on Saturday for the game with Cardiff City at London Road.'
