Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson has signed rookie Manchester United duo Ryan Tunnicliffe and Scott Wootton on loan deals.

The length of the deals is yet to be disclosed.

Midfielder Tunnicliffe, 18, and 19-year-old defender Wootton have yet to make their first-team United debuts.

Wootton, who switched to the Red Devils from the Liverpool academy in 2007, played nine times during a loan spell at Tranmere last season.

Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony confirmed the deals on Twitter, saying: "Gaffer just told me two United lads signed on loan, Tunnicliffe & Wootton signed up."

Ferguson took a number of United players on loan during his time as Preston boss.
