LuaLua (38) has been training with the city side recently, while awaiting international clearance. He has looked fit and in top form so Sports are hopeful he will boost their chances in the Southern League and the FA Trophy.

LuaLua has played international football alongside former Posh defender Gaby Zakuani for DR Congo and Zakuani is understood to have recommended his old teammate find a club in Peterborough.

LuaLua started his career at Colchester and has also played for Blackpool and Greek champions Olympiakos. He earned fame for his somersault goal celebrations.
