Peterborough United have signed former Swansea City defender Liam Shephard following a successful trial.

The 22-year-old was released by the Swans earlier this summer and spent last season on loan at League Two side Yeovil Town.

Shephard, who has represented Wales under 21s, has agreed a two-year deal at the ABAX Stadium and becomes their seventh signing of the transfer window.

Liam is a good lad and a good character, he has bought into everything in the last few weeks and that was extremely important.

He can operate in a couple of different positions and I am really happy that we have been able to get it done.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager
