Aaron McLean returns to Peterborough United

18 November 2014

Peterborough United have re-signed former striker Aaron McLean on loan from Sky Bet League 1 rivals Bradford City.

McLean, a Posh player between 2006 and 2010, has returned to London Road on a deal until January, with his parent club having a 24-hour recall clause after the first month of the loan.

McLean is out of favour at Bradford, where he is just 10 months into a two-and-a-half-year contract. However, the 31-year-old missed the whole of pre-season through injury and has been limited to seven league starts since.

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson said: "It's a good move and I'm pleased for Aaron. It's a good opportunity for him to go down there and get some games.

"Peterborough expressed an interest as soon as we made him available and that's where he preferred to go.

"A few clubs came in for him straight away but it's taken a bit of time to get the deal agreed with Peterborough. I hope he does well there."

McLean went on to score more than 80  goals for Peterborough during his four-year stay, helping the club win back-to-back promotions from League 2 to the Championship.

After leaving to join Hull City, loan spells at Ipswich Town and Birmingham City followed before McLean signed for Bradford in January of this year as a replacement for Nahki Wells.
