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.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager
