Peterborough United have signed Bishop's Stortford striker Kyle Vassell for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old will sign a deal until 2016, with the transfer window not applying to non-league clubs.

Vassell has scored 16 goals in 16 games for the Conference South promotion-chasing side this season.

He follows in the footsteps of ex-Stortford striker Dwight Gayle, who had a prolific spell with the Blues before joining Posh

Vassell played his last game for Rod Stringer's side on Sunday, the televised in which he came off with a dead leg.

Afterwards he told the Herts & Essex Observer:external-link "I'm disappointed I'm leaving, but at the same time it's a new chapter in my life.

"I need to try myself at a higher level and see what I can do and try to enjoy it as much as I have here.

"Peterborough's track record of dealing with non-league players, strikers in particular, is second to none.

"Don't get me wrong, it's a great level for me to play at and a great opportunity, but I don't see myself finishing there.

"So going to a great club like that with a track record of moving players on as well, it's ideal for someone like me."

The move concludes a good week for Stortford's finances, which were also boosted by money earned from their FA Cup run.
