Posh have swooped to sign exciting winger David Ajiboye on a three-year contract.
Peterborough United are pleased to announce the signing of exciting winger David Ajiboye on a three-year contract after agreeing an undisclosed fee with Sky Bet League Two side Sutton United, who enjoyed a fine first campaign at the level following promotion from the Vanarama National League.
The 23-year-old was a standout performer for Sutton last term, scoring eight goals for the club as they also reached the final of the EFL Trophy at Wembley Stadium. He spent time with Brighton and Hove Albion prior to joining Sutton and has made over 100 appearances for the club since.
Manager Grant McCann was pleased to secure his signature: “David has pace to burn, he can play wide on the right or left, he brings something different to what we already have. He is very direct, he will take people on and put teams on the back foot.
“The different variations to our forward line is what we like, he is a very hard-working wide forward and will put a huge shift in for the team out of possession with his counter press and reactions. He has been the standout player at Sutton and at League Two level and we believe this is the perfect progression for him to show his ability and we are delighted to have him on board.”
Ajiboye was delighted to put pen to paper. “I had three good years with Sutton and I am very thankful to everyone at the club for the opportunity. I felt like this was the right time for the next chapter and I believe this is the perfect place for me. I like to attack, get past the full-back, create chances and score goals.
“This club have had a lot of really good attacking players and there is some really good players here now and I can’t wait to get started. There has been a bit of talk about this move for a little while so I am really happy we have got it over the line.”
Ajiboye will wear the number 19 shirt.
