Skysports.com understands Peterborough are monitoring Grant McCann's situation at Scunthorpe.
The midfielder is set to be out of contract at Glanford Park over the summer, meaning he could become available as a free agent.
The 30-year-old has been with the Iron since January 2008, but is yet to pen fresh terms which would prolong his stay at the club.
Should he decide to move on there are likely to be no shortage of takers for the cultured playmaker.
The Northern Ireland international is a proven Championship performer and would not be on the market for long.
Peterborough are therefore keeping a close eye on his situation, allowing them to swoop for his services at the earliest opportunity.
The Posh slipped into League One at the end of the 2009/10 campaign but Gary Johnson is in the process of piecing together a squad capable of bouncing back into the second tier at the first time of asking.
