Posh swoop for highly-rated Dundee United midfielder.
Peterborough United have completed the signing of highly-rated midfielder Jeando Fuchs from Scottish Premier League side Dundee United for an undisclosed fee with the 24-year-old penning a two-and-a-half year contract after completing the paperwork at the idverde Training Ground on Friday morning.
Fuchs, who has been linked with a host of clubs, goes straight into the Posh squad for Saturday’s televised clash with Sheffield United at the Weston Homes Stadium. Fuchs, who represented France at under 19 and under 20 level, has two caps for Cameroon, making his debut for the country in 2018 against Brazil.
The midfielder started his career with Sochaux in France before spells at Alaves and Maccabi Haifi during the 2019-2020 campaign. Posh boss Darren Ferguson was pleased to secure the services of the midfielder and is looking forward to working with him.
“We enquired about him in the summer, but couldn’t get it over the line. He is an aggressive midfield player, plenty of energy, breaks things up and is good enough on the ball. We felt we needed another body in there and I am delighted to get him in the building.
“He gets up against people, he is tenacious, so good at intercepting things. There are areas we can improve him on and I have spoken to him this morning about that. His attitude was first class, it was never about money or anything like that, he drove down last night and I really liked how keen he was to come to us.”
The deal is subject to international clearance.
