The Tottenham Hotspur goalie has extended his loan spell at London Road.
McGee joined the Posh on loan in the summer and has been an integral part of the League One team throughout the current campaign.
Tottenham's Luke McGee warms up
With his loan deal expiring in the winter Peterborough’s chairman might have been looking at a January hunt for a new stopper.
But he has instead managed to extend the deal and tweeted after confirming the news that he did not come cheap:
Some good news coming up at 12 about finally sorting loan extension on an important player for @theposhofficial— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) December 16, 2016
Cost me a fortune but yep important one https://t.co/G6ddQwTcQO— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) December 16, 2016
Happy to have secured @Lukemcgee1 for rest of season on loan!— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) December 16, 2016
Tough to get it done cause of wage cap in L1 & didn't expect it to cost so much but now done. https://t.co/tiifVf4QJX— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) December 16, 2016
Now it is likely the fee involved is not an amount that would shock Spurs fans, with the millions they have to spend on players, but at a tight-run ship that MacAnthony must run at London Road the budget is much smaller.
It is therefore a testament to the talents of Spurs’ young goalie that the Posh chairman was willing to dig deep to secure his services for the rest of the season.
Tottenham fans will hope he can continue to impress in League One.
