Australian attacking midfielder Bradden Inman has switched clubs joining Peterborough United on a free transfer from Crewe and will now link up with his new teammates in Portugal for pre-season training.
The 24-year-old attacking midfielder, who was called into the Caltex Socceroos squad for the recent friendly against England, has penned a three-year deal, the club confirmed on Monday.
"He [Inman] is a player that I have watched a lot of. He scored 10 goals from midfield for Crewe last season and is a very exciting player,” Peterborough manager Grant McCann said on the club’s website.
"It is hotting up the competition in the midfield area of the pitch. There are eight or nine players fighting for probably four positions. One thing I wanted to do was to make sure we had good competition for places.
"Brad is a good player, he can play anywhere in the front three or in a diamond formation, he likes to get at people with the ball and scores goals. I am delighted to have him on board.”
Inman left Australia and joined the Newcastle United Academy as a teenager and also represented Scotland at youth level.
He made more than 100 appearances for Crewe in League One before agreeing to make the switch to Peterborough.
After completing his medical, Inman will fly out to join his new teammates who are currently at a training camp in Portugal.
