Former Peterborough United player David Oldfield has returned to the club to become manager Grant McCann's new assistant.

Oldfield has signed a two-year deal with Posh after initially carrying out the role for the final few weeks of last season.

It will be the second time that the 48-year-old has been part of Peterborough's coaching staff having previously worked there between 2008-2011.

He replaces Lee Glover who was sacked back in March.

It was a no-brainer from my point of view and I am over the moon. To have his expertise and experience around me and my staff is fantastic.

Since he joined us at the end of last season, the boys bought into his ideas. He is an excellent coach and has great experience of this league.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager

Peterborough have also confirmed that Mark Tyler has been appointed Goalkeeping Coach on a permanent basis, but highly-rated midfielder Jermaine Anderson has turned down the offer of a new contract.
