Ferdinand signs for Posh

Peterborough have signed highly-rated midfielder Kane Ferdinand

from Southend.

Ferdinand, cousin of Manchester United defender Rio and QPR’s

Anton, has moved to London Road on a four-year contract for a fee

that could net the Shrimpers over ?500,000.

The teenager will not be involved in Saturday’s Championship

fixture at Birmingham as the transfer was completed after the noon

deadline.

Posh also had a bid rejected by Southend for winger Ryan Hall

earlier in the day.
