Defender Ryan Tafazolli joined Posh in the summer of 2016 from Sky Bet League Two side Mansfield Town.

The highly-rated centre back was linked with a host of clubs, including a number of Championship clubs, but put pen to paper on a deal at the ABAX Stadium, committing his future with Peterborough United until the summer of 2019.

Orginally part of the hugely credited Southampton Academy, Tafazolli won a string of Player of the Year awards at Field Mill with Mansfield before making the move to the ABAX Stadium. A powerful centre back, Iranian-born Tafazolli is excellent in the air, keen to join in with the ball at his feet and a real threat from set-pieces.
