Mark Tyler has rejoined Posh as player-coach.

Peterborough United are delighted to announce that Mark Tyler has returned to the Football Club as player-coach, signing initially on a three-month loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.

Tyler, who played against Posh for Luton Town in the Emirates FA Cup earlier in the campaign, will work with the first team goalkeepers as well as the youth team shot-stoppers.

Manager Graham Westley said: "Mark is legendary at the club in terms of his past, he is ambitious to build his career from playing into coaching and is anxious to have the opportunity to play as well so it fits perfectly.

"He knows the football club well and the football club knows all about him. He brings a wealth of goalkeeping expertise and he has the ambition to go into coaching so all of the boxes are ticked and we are delighted to have him here."

Tyler, speaking to the club website, said: "I am really happy to be here. I have to say a big thank you to Luton Town, the board of directors and the manager for allowing this to happen. I told them there was not another club I would have left them to join, but everyone knows what Peterborough United means to me.

"I am delighted to be back and I can't wait to start working with the goalkeepers at the club. I am 38, 39 next month, but I am still raring to go when it comes to playing and I can't wait to get started on the training ground," Tyler said.

Tyler will wear the number 14 shirt.
