Thorne makes Posh switch

And Wood extends loan spell at Millwall

GEORGE Thorne has today joined Peterborough United on a youth loan until January 3.

The Baggies have the right to recall the 19-year-old midfielder after 28 days.

He will link up with Albion team-mate Saido Berahino, who is also on a youth loan at London Road until January 2.

Thorne has made two first-team starts for the Baggies this season in the Capital One Cup against Yeovil and Liverpool.

He had two loan spells at Portsmouth last term, making 14 Championship appearances for the South Coast club in total.

Elsewhere, Chris Wood’s loan spell at Millwall has been extended until January 1.

The Baggies have the right to recall the Kiwi striker after 28 days.

Wood netted his seventh goal in 12 appearances for the Lions on Sunday as they overcame Leeds 1-0 at The New Den to move up to ninth in the Championship.
