Posh sign Kettering's Geohaghon

Exodus Geohaghon
Geohaghon has now stepped up four divisions in less than 18 months

Peterborough United have signed Kettering Town centre-back Exodus Geohaghon on loan with a permanent move to follow in January.

The two clubs have already agreed a fee for the England C international, 24, who represented Great Britain at the World Student Games in the summer.

He will link up with former boss Mark Cooper, who arrived at London Road from the Poppies last week.

Geohaghon joined Kettering from Blue Square North side Redditch in 2008.

The move means he has moved up four divisions in less than 18 months.

Poppies player-boss Lee Harper said he was disappointed to lose the defender but admitted he had to allow him to take the chance of stepping to a higher level.

"It's going to be a huge loss but we can't sit around moping and crying," the goalkeeper told BBC Radio Northampton.

"He's got an opportunity to improve himself at a much higher level. He's given his all to the the club. I wanted to keep everyone here but we've got to try and find another gem to solidify us at the back."

Geohaghon began his career as a trainee at West Bromwich Albion before spells with Southern League sides Sutton Coldfield and Bromsgrove Rovers.

He joined Redditch from local rivals Rovers in 2006.

Commenting on his latest move he said: "I would like to be involved as soon as possible but if not I will wait in the wings for my chance and grab it with both hands.

"The body needs to adjust but I am feeling good about myself, I am not completely off the pace and I am feeling like I could ready sooner rather than later.

"It's about doing the ugly things first and foremost, getting hit, making strong tackles and stop conceding goals."
