Having scooped up Ryan Tunnicliffe and Scott Wootton on loan last week, Darren Ferguson has made another move for a united youngster.

Nicky Ajose was a revelation last term on loan at Bury scoring 13 goal in 28 appearances for the League 2 side as they were promoted into League 1.

His exploits brought the 19 year old attacker to the attention of numerous clubs and it was thought that he would go on another season long loan. Norwich, Leeds and Middlesborough were all linked with moves for him but Peterborough have stolen a march on them all by thrashing out a £300k deal to bring him to London Road permanently according to Sky Sports.

Ferguson will now need to convince Ajose to agree terms before a move to London Road can take place and he can join up with team mates Tunnicliffe and Wootton.
