Tottenham goalkeeper Luke McGee has agreed to extend his loan at Peterborough until the end of the season – and both Spurs and Posh fans on Twitter gave the thumbs-up to the transfer.

McGee is regarded as a rising star at White Hart Lane and his reputation has been further enhanced by his displays for the League One club.

Tottenham announced on their official Twitter account on Friday that McGee’s half-season loan to third tier side Peterborough will now be extended from the start of January until the end of the 2016-17 campaign.

The deal is the first agreed by Spurs ahead of the January transfer window and comes at a time when McGee has been an integral player for Peterborough.

The 21-year-old is the first-choice goalkeeper in Grant McCann’s promotion-chasing side, who are sixth in the League One table.

Supporters of both club believe it makes sense for McGee to remain at Boro given that he is behind Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and on-loan Paul Lopez in the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Lloris is set to continue in goal for Spurs on Sunday as they host Burnley and aim for their second Premier League home win in five days.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are fifth in the table, but their haul of 30 points from 16 matches leaves them 10 adrift of leaders and bitter rivals Chelsea.

In other Tottenham transfer news, this is why Spurs must make a January swoop for the final player recommended by Paul Mitchell.
