20 July 2015

Posh make second signing of the day with the arrival of Souleymane Coulibaly.

Peterborough United have secured the signing of former Tottenham Hotspur striker Souleymane Coulibaly after the front man impressed in a short trial with the football club.

The 20-year-old spent three years at White Hart Lane and scored 14 goals in nine appearances for the Ivory Coast under 20 side.


While playing for the Ivory Coast under 20s, he bagged a hat-trick against Brazil and was linked with a host of top European clubs.


'I am really happy to be here, to play in England is something that I have wanted to do for a very long time. I was on trial at Crewe, but when Peterborough contacted me and invited me to come in and train, it was something that I wanted to do.

'I spent three years at Tottenham but I never played in the first team, it was only friendly games. I left, but I am very excited to play and do my best for the team. I can't wait to get started.'

Manager Dave Robertson said: 'I think a few people might think that because we played Tottenham that is how the deal was done, but he has been on our radar for a while as part of our recruitment strategy and it is great to have him on board. He has been training with us and we know what he can bring to us.'

Coulibaly willl wear the number 28 shirt for the football club.
