Peterborough have transfer-listed eight stars and handed new deals to two teenagers as Darren Ferguson looks to rejig his squad.

Paul Taylor and George Boyd are among the players made available for transfer as the Championship club look to cash in on their assets to avoid them leaving for free when their contracts expire.

With goalkeeper Joe Lewis also having left the club it signifies major changes at London Road in the summer.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The following players' names have been circulated to clubs and a fee will be required for their services;

"Mark Little, Grant McCann, David Ball, Scott Griffiths, Nicky Ajose, Matthew Breeze, George Boyd and Paul Taylor.

"Joe Lewis and Danny Mills have both left the club after their contracts expired and we thank them for their services."

Staying

Two players that will be staying are the teenage duo of Charlie Coulson and James Sage who have both signed new terms with the club.

Coulson became the second youngest player in the club's history when he made his debut as a substitute against Watford last weekend.

Peterborough have acted fast to tie the young talent to a deal, with Coulson signing a two-and-a-half year contract with the option of a further year when he turns 17.

And the 16-year-old midfielder has already got his manager talking enthusiastically about his prospects.

"I am really excited about him," Ferguson told the club's official website. "He is a very good footballer.

"Everyone will be aware just by looking at him that he needs to bulk up physically, but he has all the attributes I like in a footballer.

"He has two good feet, he can get a goal and we have high hopes for him without getting too carried away."

Praise

Ferguson also reserved praise for 17-year-old Sage, who has signed a two-year deal with the Posh.

"James has improved massively and fair credit to the boy for that," said the Peterborough boss.

"He has got better and better and when he trained with the first team he looked comfortable.

"He can play left-back or centre-back but I think he is better at centre-back."
