Posh Secure Binnom-Williams Signing

2 August 2016

Posh have secured the signing of defender Jerome Binnom-Williams for an undisclosed fee.

Peterborough United are pleased to announce the signing of Crystal Palace left-back Jerome Binnom-Williams with the 21-year-old penning a two-year contract at the ABAX Stadium after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

Binnom-Williams completed the formalities at the Mick George Training Academy on Tuesday morning and will meet his new team-mates as preparations continue for the opening day at Rochdale.

Manager Grant McCann told "Jerome was on our list from very early on. We didn't realise that we were able to sign him on a permanent deal so we are delighted to have been able to get it done.

"He is someone I watched last year at Burton and he did well and he had a good loan spell at Leyton Orient as well. I did say that I want competition for places and he provides that in the left-back area.

"Andrew Hughes has been excellent, but it gives him some competition and keeps him on his toes," McCann said.

Binnom-Williams spent time on-loan with Southend United and Burton Albion, playing against Posh for the latter last term. He is an England under 19 international.

Binnom-Williams admitted the deal happened quickly. "I was sitting down with the family and the girlfriend a few nights ago and I got a call from my agent saying that Peterborough were interested in taking me on a permanent deal and it was something that excited me.

"I am delighted to be here. I have been at Crystal Palace for a long time, so it was a big decision to leave, but I want to play football and it is down to me now to push for a place in the starting line-up," Binnom-Williams concluded.
