Ebbsfleet United have missed out on a transfer target as Northampton Town have signed Peterborough United striker Junior Morias for an undisclosed fee.
The 23-year-old had been a player Fleet boss Daryl McMahon was keen to bring to the Vanarama National League side. It was recently reported that a fee had been agreed between the two clubs, but McMahon was quoted late this week as saying a deal was nowhere near close.
“We are really pleased to bring Junior to the club,” Northampton manager Dean Austin told the club’s website.
“We believe he has the attributes to be a big success for us. He is quick, powerful and direct and he can finish. He was very keen to come to the club despite strong interest from elsewhere and that was great to see.”
