League One transfer latest: Peterborough land Tottenham's Bale lookalike

Doncaster Keepmoat

All the latest summer transfer news from League One...

Peterborough United are looking to return to the Championship under Darren Ferguson having lost in the play-off semi-final to Leyton Orient last season, and they've made a move to boost their attack today. Tottenham winger Kenny McEvoy has joined the Posh on a season-long loan deal, and the youngster - who is most well known for being a remarkable Gareth Bale lookalike - is highly rated by the London Road club.

"Kenny is an exciting player, full of pace and energy. It is a big season for him, this is the next step in his development," said manager Ferguson. "I think he will excite people. He is a winger who can play either side. He is an intelligent player, he understands the game tactically and can play in numerous roles. I have had a good chat with him, he is raring to go.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough has been busy at Bramall Lane this summer, adding Craig Alcock, Andy Butler, James Wallace, Jamal Campbell-Ryce, Chris Basham and Ben Davies to his squad as the Blades look to mount a promotion push.

Now it seems that signing a new left back is on Clough's agenda, and he's looking to the Premier League for a solution. Aston Villa's Enda Stevens, who spent time with Yorkshire rivals Doncaster Rovers last season, is believed to be on the club's radar, but Championship sides Millwall and Rotherham are also interested.

Doncaster saw the proposed takeover from One Direction member Louis Tomlinson fall apart this week, and the ramifications are now being felt. Long-serving winger James Coppinger will now leave the club, and the 33-year-old is sad to leave after such an affiliation with the club.

"I’m no longer at Doncaster Rovers," said Coppinger. "Without doubt I’ve played my last game for the club – not through my decision. They [the owners] have made their decision and I respect that. I’ve not received an offer from them and I’m looking forward to a new challenge."

"I can totally understand what’s happened with the takeover and the chairman [John Ryan] and the owners. They want to go down a different route. They don’t want to spend the money on the players and I respect that decision," added Coppinger.
