Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson believes that the former St Ives man will prove to be a hit in League One.

'He was desperate to come to us, he wanted to sign and I am pleased to have him on board.

"He will go straight into the squad for Wednesday's game. He has played a lot of games this season so he doesn't need time to get up to speed."

Peterborough United midfielder Kane Ferdinand has joined Skrill Premier League leaders Luton Town on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old previously spent time on loan at Northampton Town this season after falling out of favour at London Road.

Hatters boss John Still believes that the former Southend United man will prove to be an astute signing.

“He’s an all-action midfield player who plays a high-energy game and gets all around the pitch,” Still told Luton's website.

"He’s the sort of player I like. He can come up with the odd goal and for him to play 30-odd games in the Championship last season speaks volumes."
