Peterborough United have signed teenage defender Ronnie Edwards from Barnet on a three-year deal.

The 17-year-old had been at Barnet since the age of nine, was a product of the Bees scholarship programme and had made two first-team appearances.

Edwards trained with Posh and impressed boss Darren Ferguson during a trial game against Peterborough Sports.

"I had made my mind up, he was excellent," Ferguson said. "He did everything I asked of him."

The deal is subject to English Football League ratification.
