Posh win battle to sign striker

29 January 2009 05:37
The 20-year-old, who joins for an undisclosed fee, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal after passing a medical at London Road.

Despite denying that he wanted to recruit players during the January transfer window, manager Darren Ferguson felt snapping up Wright was a chance he could not afford to miss.

He told the Posh official site: "I have always said that if young players become available that we feel we can develop, then we would look to do something.

"This signing follows the criteria we have at the football club about bringing in young, hungry players.

"Ben is one that has been on the radar for a little while, we have watched him closely and believe he will bring something different."
