Peterborough are close to completing a permanent deal for Wolves defender Mark Little, says boss Gary Johnson.The 21-year-old has been on loan with Posh since March and is out of contract at Molineux. [LNB]Manager Johnson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Mark is happy to be at the club, but his agent is away on holiday at the moment. [LNB]"I hope it's pretty close now. It's just a case of his representative coming back and we'll be nearly there." [LNB]Little made nine starts after joining Posh on loan in March while Jim Gannon was at the helm. [LNB]Johnson wants to keep the versatile defender, but said he has further options should a deal fall through.[LNB] I feel we need to sign Little and preferably another defender who can play full back NarrowboatDave "You have to have other irons in the fire because if you're chasing a quality player you can never be sure you have them until they sign on the dotted line," he said. [LNB]Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony has promised Johnson the funds to mount a promotion push next season. [LNB]The former Bristol City boss wants to seal his first signings by the middle of June at the very latest. [LNB]"We've made two offers and they're mulling over the terms at the moment so it should be done soon," he said. [LNB]"We're ideally looking for six or seven players and I'm looking at strengthening in most positions."
