Cardiff City have signed 19-year-old former Peterborough goalkeeper Charlie Horton on a free transfer.
The 6ft 4in player was born in London but moved to Ohio in the United States as a nine-year-old.
He joined the Posh in July 2013 but left by mutual consent in April 2014 having failed to make a single first-team appearance.
Horton will now join City's under-21 side and travel to Sarajevo in Bosnia-Hercegovina for a pre-season friendly.
The Welsh club were relegated at the end of their first Premier League season and hope to bounce back with a successful 2014-15 Championship campaign.
