Christian Burgess is set to become Paul Cook’s next addition as the squad revamp gathers pace.

Peterborough’s Barry Fry has confirmed that a fee and personal terms have been agreed for the 23 year old 6’5″ centre-back who will have a medical on his return from holiday early next week.

Burgess was one of seven players transfer-listed this summer by Peterborough after playing 33 games for Posh last season and scoring four goals.

Peterborough fan Adrian Durham tweeted on
@talkSPORTDrive: Gutted Burgess is leaving Posh for Pompey. Ball-playing c-halves rare, he was made to look bad by midfielders who didn’t want the ball. Paul Cook’s teams pass the ball, all good technicians, so @Burgey44 should fit in very well @officialpompey.

Pompey fan @jayr1972: Somewhere in Egypt @Burgey44 phone will be going mad with tweet notifications. Sorry about the roaming costs.
