Peterborough United have completed the loan signing of Rotherham United defender Dominic Ball on a deal until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old started his career at Tottenham Hotspur and spent much of last season out on loan at Rangers.

Ball has been given permission to feature in Sunday's FA Cup tie at Chelsea

It is great to have Dominic at the club. He has good experience, he won the league last year with Glasgow Rangers in a loan spell and we are delighted to have him here.

It is an extra option for us defensively, he can play at centre back, full back or in the holding midfield role, so it is great to have that versatility.

Peterborough United have re-signed West Ham midfielder Martin Samuelsen on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old Norwegian was a fans' favourite during his time at Posh last season and scored a memorable solo against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

He joined Championship side Blackburn on loan earlier this season but failed to make an impact at Ewood Park.

Samuelsen is eligible to face Scunthorpe United tomorrow and will also be allowed to play in the big FA Cup tie at Chelsea next Sunday.

It is great to have Martin back at the club.

He is well loved by the players and the staff and of course the supporters, I am sure he will bring a lot more quality to us and we are looking forward to working with him again.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager

Meanwhile, on loan George Moncur has returned to Barnsley and defender Ricardo Almeida Santos has moved to Barnet for an undisclosed fee.

Elsewhere, on loan MK Dons winger Ryan Colclough has been recalled by Wigan Athletic.

Peterborough United's game at Oldham Athletic this afternoon has been called off due to a frozen pitch.

Following an inspection by the referee at Boundary Park, the surface has been deemed to be unsafe and the match will have to be played again at a later date.

Hi vis mix-up spells confusion for Posh

Peterborough United's bright yellow away kit led to a moment of confusion when Michael Bostwick passed the ball to a steward on the touchline instead of a team mate.

The moment came during Posh's game with Northampton on Saturday, but it won't have worried Peterborough too much, they won 1-0.

But it did prompt this amusing response on Twitter.

Peterborough United striker Gormley quits pro football

Peterborough United striker Joe Gormley has quit professional football.

The Northern Irishman is currently on loan at SPL side St Johnstone but has struggled to make an impact after joining them in the summer transfer window.

He has now grown disillusioned with his lack of first team action and has told Posh he wants to walk away from the game.

Gormley moved to Peterborough from semi-professional side Cliftonville for £50,000 in 2015, but almost immediately suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.

His luck hasn't changed north of the border and he's now back training with his former club in his homeland.

The important thing here is Joe’s wellbeing and it is clear he does not wish to continue playing full time football.

Having already turned out for Peterborough United and ourselves that is not an option this season in any case.

It’s always been our aim to do what’s best for the player and that’s what we are attempting to do.

– Tommy Wright, St Johnstone manager
