Posh boss Darren Ferguson believes new signing Jon Taylor has the attributes required to be a success at London Road.

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson believes new signing Jon Taylor brings 'something different' to the group ahead of the new Sky Bet League One campaign.

Taylor, who penned a three-year deal at London Road after moving from Shrewsbury Town, is predominantly a winger, but can operate in forward areas. He was the Shrews top scorer last term with nine goals.

'Jon is a winger and is extremely quick. He did well in a team that were ultimately relegated from League One last season and was their top scorer from a wide area.

'He is a really likeable lad. I met him and he really impressed me with the reasons behind why he wants to sign for Peterborough United and that is extremely important.

'He is a good age, he is someone that we can develop and improve and is exactly the type of player that we look for. He brings something a bit different and his pace is really going to be an asset and that will be important next season. I am very pleased to have him on board,' Ferguson said.
