Posh sign Ajose

Published Add your comment

Peterborough have swooped to sign teenage striker Nicky Ajose from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old, who spent a spell on loan with Bury last season, has signed a four-year deal at London Road and will now link up with his new team-mates at their training camp in Portugal.

"Nicky has good pace, is two-footed and a very good finisher. He has a lot of potential, has good pedigree and was successful during his loan spell with Bury last season, scoring a lot of goals in League Two," Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson told the club's official website.

"We feel he can make the step up to the Championship. He has a fantastic attitude, speaking to my Dad, he tells me that he is the first in the building every day so that stands him in good stead.

"I am looking forward to working with him. Obviously Craig Mackail-Smith has left and I am not going to be putting any pressure on the lad to be the replacement or anything like that.

"But he has the that pace, he plays on the shoulder and he can also link play. He can play wide if we went to a three up top and I believe he is a very good signing for the club."
