Tyler ready to leave Peterborough

Transfer-listed Peterborough United goalkeeper Mark Tyler has said he wants first-team football next season.

Tyler, 32, lost his place as Posh number one following the arrival of Joe Lewis in January 2008 but has shown little desire to leave until now.

He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "There's been a bit of interest so we'll have to wait and see.

"I want to play football now, so it's down to me and the club to sort it out. We'll see what happens in the summer."

Tyler has made over 400 appearances for Posh in over a decade at London Road.

But with Lewis in the first XI and teenager James McKeown regularly named as back-up, Tyler has been deemed surplus to requirements.

He decided to stay with Posh last summer despite being placed on the transfer list but now accepts it is time to move on.

"I'd never say never, but I know my situation and it's in my best interests to move on," he said.

"I went to Bury on loan earlier in the year and it whetted my appetite for playing again."

Tyler has a year left on his contract with Posh and has not ruled out a return to Bury despite their failure to win promotion from League Two.
