Nigeria Under-20 and Under-23 international striker Danny Uchechi has joined Peterborough United on trial.

The 21-year-old former Charlton trainee had a loan spell at Leicester City last season, from Nigerian side FC Dender .

Posh boss Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Mark Robson [first-team coach] knows him from his time at Charlton.

"He's come in and trained very, very well. He's keen, he wants to get on the ball and he's a decent footballer."

Uchechi, who also had a spell at West Ham United, played the second half of Wednesday night's 3-2 win over Notts County at Meadow Lane.

He had a trial at Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen earlier this summer.

Meanwhile, defender Gabby Zakuani missed the trip to County with a slight knock, but is expected to be fit for Saturday's match at St Neots.
