Ward, who scored against Posh in the FA Cup tie earlier in the campaign, has been in fine form this season for the Cards, scoring seven goals and creating a host of other goals for team-mates. The highly-rated attacker rose to prominence with his form for Chelmsford City and earned a move to Brighton and Hove Albion.

He had a successful loan spell with Lincoln City before joining Woking in the summer of 2017. He has been linked with a host of other clubs, but has committed his future to the Posh and has already started looking at houses in the city and surrounding areas.

Manager Grant McCann said: “I think it is a great signing for this football club. He brings pace, energy and can go past people both ways.

“He has scored a few goals already this season and was excellent against us in the FA Cup, especially in the first game at their place. He is a lad that I have been aware of for about a year now. I have kept a close eye on his progress, watching his development and am delighted to get him on board.”
