Peterborough United are hoping to tie up a deal for Stevenage striker Matthew Godden, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The Posh are preparing for next season and have already secured the signing of Aaron Chapman from Chesterfield and Rhys Bennett from Mansfield. They are now trying to get a deal done for Godden.

The 26-year-old striker scored 14 goals this season for Stevenage in League Two. He managed to score 21 goals in the last campaign so is ready to test himself in the third tier now.

However, signing Godden may open the door for Jack Marriott to leave Peterborough this summer. He scored 33 goals this season and has been heavily linked with a move to the Championship.

The Posh will be hoping that Godden will be an ideal replacement for Marriott. He started his career at Scunthorpe United but struggled to break into the first-team at Glanford Park. He was loaned out to Brigg Town, Ilkeston Town, Gainsborough Trinity, Ebbsfleet United, Datrford and Tamworth.

Godden left Scunthorpe on a permanent basis to join Ebbsfleet in the National League South in 2014. He was prolific for them in his two year spell there and scored 43 goals in 82 appearances. This earned him a move to Stevenage in 2016 and he has adapted well to life in the Football League.

Peterborough United are busy at the moment and the signing of Matthew Godden will be an exciting one for their fans.
