Peterborough United have today confirmed the signing of Macclesfield Town striker Emile Sinclair.

The 23-year-old forward has recently impressed in the Carling Cup and Npower League Two, sparking interest from a handful of teams in the second tier.

It's the Posh who have won the race for the player though, and manager Darren Ferguson is delighted to add the player to his ranks.

"Emile is very quick, and someone who can really penetrate the opposing defence, and I think in the last two games we have missed someone with that style of play," Ferguson told the official Peterborough United website.


"Barry Richardson, our goalkeeping coach, has worked with him before so we know all about him.

"He can play wide and has actually played most of his career as a winger, but he has played down the middle and that is where we will look to play him."

Sinclair, who started his career with Nottingham Forest and spent time on loan at Brentford and Mansfield Town, has scored 17 goals in 86 appearances for the Silkmen since joining in the summer of 2009.

The player joins Daniel Kearns, a Republic of Ireland youth international, in signing for Posh in the final days of the transfer window, and the duo are set to make their debuts for the club in a friendly against St. Albans on Monday night.
