Posh to discuss long term Samuelsen deal



Barry Fry will definitely be asking West Ham for permission to keep Martin Samuelsen at Posh if the League One club are promoted to the Championship.

The young Norwegian smashed home the first goal in the club’s Third Round FA Cup victory over Preston North End yesterday and Fry said: “I’d love us to draw Manchester City at their place tomorrow night – he would love that and so would we.”

Martin’s goal was his second in successive games and after beating four men for his effort against Sheffield United, yesterday’s gave the keeper no chance. (See the video below)

Talking exclusively to ClaretandHugh Fry said: “It couldn’t have been more different. The guy is pure quality. We are in the final play-off place at the moment and I’ve said he is the difference between promotion and us staying where we are in League One.

“If we do get into the Championship we shall certainly be asking West Ham the question about whether we can keep him for another season – he’s a player who gets the crowd on the edge of their seats every time he picks up the ball.”

Fry confirmed that should West Ham draw Posh at any stage of the season, Samuelsen would be unable to play under the conditions of the loan deal.

  1. Sorry Posh, we are going to need him for our extended European campaign next season..

  2. Barry Fry is very enthusiastic, one minute The Championship, and later on The Premiership? lol I agree with what Klopp said on Friday they are going to be a club that stops sending young players all out on loan, if a young player is good enough and Martin does seem so, we should be looking to develop himself and forget about extended loans.

  3. He feels loved and he is clearly enjoying himself at posh !
    West ham need him on the bench and involved as Cullen and oxford are !
    I think next season we will see that , IMHO I think oxford and Cullen need to go out on loan as well !
    We intend to spend loads of money next year ? Where and when do these young ones get there chance ? Its a tricky balancing act and you get the feeling that you will lose them at some point as we always seem to do as its always easier to buy than introduce ,
    They are young , they are to be managed correctly which I’m sure Bilic and the team are doing, I hope we end up seeing more of them in the future and not what happened with the demise of Rio,s era when they all achieved success elsewhere ! But I must say that I don’t feel we will make the same mistake twice, as the Dave’s said , we are not a selling club!
    Its a cut throat buisness football , anything can happen at any time !
    The problem with me is I’m getting spoilt again after the last disaster hippo and getting a bit paranoid ! We must not slip up again !
    In Bilic I trust !!

  4. Next year bye bye Moses take your place Samulsun
    It’s a no brainer
    Why would we want to loan out a great talent like the young Viking
    We are not a selling club any more,and we do not need players on loan once the Jewel becomes ours,

  5. The loan for this year is agreat idea. He should be an established league player by the end it. We should extend his contract next summer if it all goes well.
    Wether he has a second year is up to Bilic, and he might think it’s a good idea if it’s in the Championship.
    Either way I can’t wait for him to be covering Payet in his role.
