Peterborough United midfielder Jermaine Anderson has ended speculation over his future by signing a new contract with the club.

The 21-year-old joined Posh from Arsenal in 2012, and is currently the club's longest-serving player.

Two serious injuries have halted his progression, but he is now back to full fitness.

Anderson's new deal will run until 2019.

“Jermaine is one of our own. He has come through the Academy and is a huge talent," Chairman Darragh MacAnthony said.

"He is still only 21-years-old and has a lot of years ahead of him so we are really pleased he has committed himself to the club. He is now fully fit and we are all looking forward to watching him kick-on.”

In other news, Posh have been dealt a big blow with the news that striker Junior Morias will be out for the next five months with a ruptured thigh.
