Peterborough win race to capture Briggs

Fulham’s Under-21 defender Matthew Briggs has joined Peterborough on a month’s loan.

Briggs has been omitted from Fulham’s matchday squad for recent games and his potential availability alerted a number of Championship clubs.

Bristol City were hoping to capture him and Burnley expressed a strong interest in the 20-year-old left-back.
