Peterborough United have re-signed striker Paul Taylor on loan from Ipswich Town.

The 25-year-old left London Road in 2012, signing for the Tractor Boys in a reported million pound plus deal.

However, Taylor missed a large chunk of his debut season in Suffolk thanks to a foot injury and Town boss Mick McCarthy has decided to allow the forward to leave on a temporary basis in a bid to step up his match fitness.

After an injury to Lee Tomlin, Posh have now swooped to bring back their former player on a loan deal that will run until 2 November.

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson told the club's official website that he had his chairman, Darragh MacAnthony, to thank for making the deal happen.

"I had a conversation with the chairman on Wednesday afternoon. We were aware that Lee (Tomlin) had his scan in the evening and that we were getting the results on Thursday morning.

"He suggested Paul Taylor and I have to be honest, I didn't think of him because I didn't think we could do a deal. However, Ipswich have allowed him to come out and get games so I thank Mick McCarthy for making the deal happen.

"I was quite happy to go with what I had, but when it became clear we could get him, I couldn't turn that opportunity down. Paul is a very good player and that is why he got the move he did."
