International Experience

Gyollai spent seven years at Stoke City, before joining Wigan Athletic for the 2019/20 season, competing with David Marshall, Jamie Jones, and Owen Evans for a place in the first team.

He failed to make a senior appearance during his time with Stoke and Wigan – featuring in their developmental squads. Though he was afforded a place on the bench on four occasions for The Latics in their Championship campaign.

He has played for Hungary at various youth levels of international football.

Good Fit

“We had him on trial for a few days when he was at Stoke,” Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson said. “He then went on to Wigan last season and had some experience in the Championship.

“He is a good size, can play from the back, and I think at his age is a really good addition to the squad and will be able to provide some real competition for Christy.”

Excited to Join the Posh

Unsurprisingly, Gyollai is looking forward to having the opportunity to make an impact on senior football for the first time at Peterborough, where he will look to push for the number one spot.

“Everything about the club made me excited to come here,” Gyollai said. “The club has a real history of bringing young players through and giving them a chance. I just can’t wait to get started and challenge for the number one shirt.

“I want to get more senior games under my belt, I want to prove myself to the gaffer, the staff and the fans and I am looking forward to making my debut and showing everyone what I can do.”

Peterborough finished just short of the League One play-off places this season and will continue to chase for promotion to the Championship in the 2020/21 campaign.
