Peterborough United have signed teenage striker Idris Kanu from non-league side Aldershot Town for an undisclosed fee.

The 17-year-old signed his first professional deal with the Shots back in December and had attracted interest from a number of clubs.

Kanu came through West Ham United's academy and had a trial with Manchester United's Under-18 side at one point.

He's agreed a three-year contract at the ABAX Stadium.

I am delighted to get Idris into the building, he is a big talent. I watched him last year at Aldershot and the kid has unbelievable ability.

We will try and nurture him, we believe he is ready for the first team now and we will work with him on the training ground to improve him.

Phillips was released by Liverpool in May after ten years at Anfield and is targeting a first-team place with the Canaries.

"I think it's good the first-team have a new head coach, so hopefully I can try and catch his eye in the Under-23s games and try to push to train with the first-team and get around the squad", he told the club's official website.

Meanwhile, League One side Northampton Town have signed striker Chris Long on a season-long loan from Premier League side Burnley.

Aston Villa midfielder Aaron Tshibola has joined League One side MK Dons on a season-long loan.

The powerful 22-year-old moved to Villa Park from Reading last summer, but was loaned out to Nottingham Forest in January.

Tshibola is the Dons' eighth signing of the summer so far.

Aaron will bring great experience, energy and power to the team. He’s a Championship-calibre player so it’s a top signing for us.

I think it shows how far we’ve come and where we’re trying to get to, that we can attract someone of Aaron’s quality.

Peterborough United have signed former Premier League defender Steven Taylor on a free transfer.

The 31-year-old made over 300 appearances for Newcastle United.

He spent last season at Ipswich in the Championship and captained the England under 21 side.

Taylor joins the League One side on a two-year deal.

Posh manager Grant McCann said he was thrilled to secure the signing of such an experienced centre back.

I am delighted to get Steven on board. I spoke at the start of pre-season about bringing winners into the squad and he is a winner. He has been promoted to the Premier League with Newcastle United and he brings a lot of experience.

I think he will be great for the younger centre backs at the club, he will add a lot to the changing room. He has played 200 games in the Premier League and I believe it is a massive coup for this football club to get him on board. I am thrilled to have him here.
