Sierra Leone and Peterborough United winger, Idris Kanu is said to be ‘ready to leave’ the club in January, with Colchester United, MK Dons and Salford City all been linked with a move.

According to Football Insider, the 22-year-old, who has been featured five times in the Championship for Peterborough United this season, is keen on sealing his exit from the Weston Homes Stadium in January as he searches for more regular first-team football.

Peterborough United wide-man who made his Sierra Leone debut in Turkey in a 2-0 defeat to Comoros, made 17 League One outings last time round and scored a couple of goals as Posh earned promotion.

Both Colchester and Salford play  their football in League Two, and either side sits in 18th and 11th respectively. MK Dons meanwhile sit in 6thplace on the League One table.

Dropping down into League Two then could well prove more fruitful for the winger – he remains a very young footballer and one with attributes that could easily make him a standout player in the English Football League.

He’s explosive in his attack, tricky to handle and he can score goals when given the chance too. He’ll need some keen man management to start fulfilling his potential after some difficult periods with Peterborough United, but there looks to be some exciting opportunities on the horizon for Kanu.
