Two good reasons why Peterborough United should go for Rochdale midfielder

Peterborough United’s Darren Ferguson hasn’t finished recruiting this transfer window as he’s supposedly looking to sign Rochdale midfielder, Callum Camps.

According to Football Insider, Peterborough United are in talks to sign Camps from the Dale before the season starts. The Northern Ireland youth international is in the final year of his contract with Rochdale that ends in the summer of 2020.

The 23 year old has spent all his youth at the Spotland Stadium and finally broke into the first team in 2013. He’s since had 173 appearances for the Dale and managed 19 goals.

The Football Manc Cave are looking at reasons to why it’d be a good move for the midfielder if he was to join Peterborough.


As we’ve said, he’s been at Rochdale for quite some time and never even had a loan spell. This possible transfer would be beneficial to him as it would allow him to gain some experience from another club, be around different surroundings and grow as a footballer.

Even though this would mean him leaving the Spotland. It wouldn’t mean him changing leagues which would also be sensible for him as he should be able to handle the style of play and teams he’ll be facing.


With his contract due to end in the summer of 2020, this could be crucial for Peterborough. If Camps manage to impress Darren Ferguson in what could be this next season, he could be offered an extended deal at the end of the season or if Rochdale decides to only loan the 23-year-old, he could be offered a permanent contract.

No matter what happens, this should give Camps more choice of where to go next in his career. He’s also been called up for Northern Ireland Under 18’s and 21’s in the past so he could be looking to prove himself in an international aspect too.

There’s only been whispers of this possible transfer so far and no actual confirmation. Although my guess is that more news will come in the next few days as Peterborough will be eager to snap the midfielder up if the rumours are true.
