Peterborough United have been one of the busiest clubs in the Football League so far this summer, and they have today (June 04) confirmed their sixth signing since the end of the season.
Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony took to Twitter to confirm the signing, and welcome Stevenage striker Matt Godden to the club.
The 26-year-old front man has moved to the ABAX Stadium for an undisclosed fee, and has signed a three year deal with the Cambridgeshire club.

Although the fee is undisclosed, both clubs have confirmed that it is a six figure deal.
Peterborough United’s interest in Matt Godden has been spoken about for a number of weeks now, with MacAnthony originally stating that talks had broken down due to a disagreement of personal terms.
However, according to the Posh chairman, Godden overruled his agent and decided to sign for the Sky Bet League One club, with MacAnthony saying that: “strikers don’t reject Posh.”
Matt Godden has spent the last two years at Sky Bet League Two club Stevenage after joining on a free transfer from Ebbsfleet United.
The striker has scored 30 league goals in the last two seasons, with ten of them coming last season. Overall, during his time at Stevenage Godden found the back of the net 35 times in 86 games.
It is not a bad goal scoring record, but his impact at former club Ebbsfleet was even better. He scored 43 goals in 82 games for the Non League side, averaging more than a goal every two games.
Whilst Posh fans will more than likely be happy to see another player arrive at the club, they will be wary that it could spell the end of star striker Jack Marriott’s time at the club.
