Posh Hyde!

Posh Hyde!

We were all wondering why Micah Hyde did not feature in Tuesday night's FA Cup match against Reading despite having been selected for the earlier postponed match on the previous Saturday.

It would appear that the reason was the fact that transfer negotiations were underway for the player.

The Offical site have confirmed that Micah is now a Posh player stating he has signed a deal with the League Two club for an initial £75,000.

A further £25,000 will be payable should Peterborough gain promotion this season.

Looks like I better start shouting for one of my local clubs down here in Cambridgeshire!

Micah Hyde was originally on the transfer list in the Summer pre-season, but Steve Cotterill removed him from the list and for a time we saw a more polished, motivated performance from the midfielder although of late he has again seemed below par. Dave Kevan, speaking to Clarets World intimated this was a good deal for someone with only six months remaining on his contract considering also Micah's age at 32. There was also a suggestion that the Club were not looking for a midfielder replacement in the transfer window prefering instead to rely on Chris McCann.

Posh manager Keith Alexander says of the deal, "Micah is an experienced player and the type of player that we need to work alongside the young players and the new signings. There are a lot of changes taking place and we need an experienced body," Alexander goes on to say,"He has been very successful at all his clubs and is highly thought of in the game. We have done very well to get him here to Peterborough and he is a good signing for this football club."

Vital BFC wish Micah all the best and thank him for his services to Burnley FC. Micah's lasting legacy will always be that breathtaking equalising goal he scored at Ewood Park in the FA Cup a couple of seasons back. Sadly we lost that game and Micah embarked on a subsequent goal famine! Thanks for that great memory at Ewood though Micah!

So what do you think about this move? Some I know have always rated our midfield general and on his day he could be awesome. He has however been prone to making costly mistakes with periods of inconsistency. Probably on balance, this is the right time for the Club to say goodbye
