League One side Peterborough United have signed striker Tom Nichols from Exeter City on a four-and-a-half year deal, the club have confirmed.
The 22-year-old forward is the Grecians’ top scorer this season, netting 12 times in 29 appearances for the League Two side, including four in his last six outings.
Announcing the deal via his Twitter account, MacAnthony revealed that the Posh first tried to sign Nichols last January, but have now agreed a long-term deal with the young striker.
Nichols has been a prolific goalscorer since making his senior debut in 2011, scoring 32 goals in 98 league matches, including 15 last season.
Peterborough are one of the strongest attacking sides in their division, scoring 53 goals in League One this campaign – just two fewer than top-scoring Gillingham – but leading scorer Conor Washington has left the club in this window, signing for QPR in January.
