Peterborough United have signed Nuneaton Town defender Alex Penny for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract.

The 20 year old, who played for Hull City as a teenager, played for Posh in Tuesday's pre-season friendly game with Ipswich.

Penny's fee is a record received for National League North side Nuneaton.

He told the club's website: "I heard that there were a few clubs reportedly interested in me, but when I heard that Peterborough wanted me to sign, it was an easy decision to make.

I want to be playing football and I will work extremely hard to try and break into the team here. It has been a bit of a whirlwind few days if I am honest."
