Peterborough have bolstered their attacking options by singing striker Paul Taylor and handing a contract extension to fellow forward Lee Tomlin.

Taylor, handed a six-month drugs ban by the Football Association while playing for Chester in 2008, has most recently played in Belgium for Anderlecht and joins on an 18-month deal.

Tomlin has made a big impact since his arrival from non-league Rushden & Diamonds in August, scoring nine times in 33 appearances and will now stay at London Road until 2015.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson said of Taylor on the club's official website: "He's a good age. He's had one or two problems off the pitch, but we're prepared to take chance on him.

"He's not one that too many people will have heard of, but he's trained well with us and played in a trial game and was the best player on the pitch.

"We won't be rushing him as his fitness is nowhere near at the minute, but he's plenty of potential and we need to fulfil that potential together."


He added on Tomin: "We're all delighted. He's done ever so well since he came. He's settled well and I believe he has real potential.

"In his first season at this level he has proved he can handle it and I believe he can play in the Championship no problem at all.

"It's a lengthy contract. Lee knows our ambitions and I think it's important we get it out of the way because coming into March we need everybody focused on the job in hand."
