* Premier League Peterborough Panthers have completed their side with the signing of Nicklas Porsing on loan from Lynn, who have still to decide their final two riders

The Panthers made their move for Danish star Porsing on a converted average of 6.58, despite reported interest in Kenneth Bjerre, who rode for Lynn last year, and Peter Karlsson.

Peterborough boss Ged Rathbone said: “He could not be more determined to prove himself in the Premier League so much so that he has put it above riding in Poland.

“I am also delighted that we have been able to use our strong links with King’s Lynn, through (Young Stars manager) Dale Allitt, to our advantage again.

“Our move to sign Nicklas certainly wouldn’t have happened without Dale and it has the full blessing of the Stars. We thank them massively for their co-operation in recent days.”
