Langmead: Peterborough talks
Skysports.com understands Peterborough are closing in on the signing of Shrewsbury defender Kelvin Langmead.
Posh boss Gary Johnson has made Langmead one of his top transfer targets and the two clubs have now agreed a fee for his services.
Langmead has now been given permission to hold talks with Posh with the League One outfit keen to tie up a deal for the player.
Langmead's agent, Jesse Learoyd-Hill, has confirmed talks are now taking place about a possible switch to London Road.
"I am aware the two clubs have agreed a fee for Kelvin," Learoyd-Hill told skysports.com.
"Kelvin had one year left on his contract and Peterborough are ready to offer him an extended contract and the opportunity to play in the division above Shrewsbury.
"As in all things in football there is no guarantee that he will be leaving, but we are in discussions and we will see how things progress."
Langmead, who is currently Shrewsbury's longest serving player, admits he could not turn down the chance to consider a move to a higher league.
"I am still a Shrewsbury player and I have never wanted to leave Shrewsbury, but I would like the opportunity to speak to a team that are in a higher division and see what they have to say," Langmead told skysports.com.
