Peterborough United eyeing swoop for 23-year-old

Peterborough United are in the hunt for Cheltenham Town midfielder Ryan Broom according to reports, with some suggesting a January move could be on the cards. 

Broom has been in sensational form for his side as they’ve made a good start to their League Two season. He’s bagged six times from midfielder as the Robins have climbed to sixth, with games in hand to go as high as second.

He’s also chipped in with four assists and has been a huge success since leaving Bristol Rovers. He came through the ranks at the Memorial Ground, but was unable to establish himself as a first-team player there.

Before his move to Whaddon Road, Broom had loan spells with Bath City, Taunton Town and Eastleigh, but never quite stepped up with the Gas.

He certainly fits the mould of a Peterborough target; he’s young enough to develop, he’s a success in the lower level and his potential resale value could increase dramatically with League One football.

Posh were beaten 4-3 by Blackpool yesterday in a thriller at the top of the table.

Our View

We like Ryan Broom, he’s got a touch of skill about him, that air of being a little bit better than the level he’s at. He’s a key player for the Robins, but they’ll want to cash in if they get the chance, although there’s no immediate pressure as he’s contracted to the club until 2021.

Sadly, all clubs in League Two are selling clubs if the money is right and Posh have proven themselves to be a buying club. They’ve enjoyed lots of success with players they’ve plucked from the fourth-tier in the past and if they go for Broom, they’re likely to find themselves turning another big profit 12 months down the line.
