Peterborough United have today (June 9) signed attacking midfielder Erhun Oztumer from non-league side Dulwich Hamlet.

Otzumer (23) was a target of several Football League clubs, most notably Luton Town, but he’s chosen instead to sign a two-year contract at London Road.

Otzumer was at Charlton as a youngster and also played in Turkish football before returning to England and non-league football. He scored 33 goals in just 49 appearances for Ryman Premier League side Dulwich last season.

Otzumer said: “I am very excited at this move. It’s a big opportunity for me. The manager has explained what my role will be at the club and I’m excited to have joined a team who play such attacking football.

“I like to get on the ball and create and score goals. I’ve played as a winger, but mainly I play in the number 10 role.”

Posh boss Darren Ferguson added: “A lot of clubs have looked at Erhun because he is an exciting player with great balance and great pace. He is small, but when we get him fit and up to speed I am confident our fans will love him.”

Otzumer is a third signing of the summer for Posh after winger Jon Taylor from Shrewsbury and central defender Gaby Zakuani who has returned to the club from a spell in Greek football.
