Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has revealed on social networking site Twitter than he has tried to sign young players on loan from Aston Villa and Arsenal in the past.

Villa are at the foot of the league table at the moment with 13 points from 23 games. The Villans are as many as nine points behind 17th-placed Swansea City, having played a game more than the Welsh outfit.
