Peterborough United chairman comments on Luke McGee expense

The Tottenham Hotspur goalie has extended his loan spell at London Road.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has been commenting on getting a loan extension done for Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Luke McGee – but admitted that he cost him a fortune.

Tottenham fans will hope he can continue to impress in League One.
