Giant defender Exodus Geohaghon has become Peterborough boss Mark Cooper's first signing at London Road.
The Posh boss raided his former club Kettering to land the 6ft 7in centre-back, who has joined the Championship strugglers on a loan deal until January.
A permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee is set to follow as Cooper seeks to strengthen his side and guide them away from the foot of the Championship.
Welcoming the step-up, Geohaghon told the Peterborough Evening Telegraph: "The opportunity to play at the level below the Premier League is a dream come true.
"It's bittersweet to be leaving Kettering, but I couldn't refuse this opportunity."
