Peterborough sign defender Adebisi and winger Hayes

Peterborough United have signed Crewe defender Rio Adebisi and Fleetwood winger Cian Hayes, both for undisclosed fees.

Adebisi, 23, has agreed a three-year contract with Posh following 136 appearances for Crewe, 54 of them last season when they reached the League Two play-off final.

Hayes, who has signed a similar deal, played 12 games for Fleetwood last season, during which he also had two spells with National League club Rochdale.

Their arrivals came on the same day that highly-rated defender Ronnie Edwards left the club to join Southampton for a reported £3m.

Peterborough have now made five signings this summer, the pair following Abraham Odoh, Chris Conn-Clarke and George Nevett.

"It has taken a little while longer than perhaps we all wanted to, but I am delighted everything is complete and I can look forward to a new challenge here," said Adebisi, who cost a "high six-figure fee" according to owner Darragh MacAnthony.

"I feel that this club is the perfect fit for me, they like to play good football and the manager has had a lot of success here, which I hope I can be part of moving forward.

Hayes, 21, scored eight goals for his two clubs last term and boss Darren Ferguson said: "We were looking at different types of wingers to add to the group and he can bring different things to the mix.

"He actually came on for Fleetwood against us before joining Rochdale and he obviously had a really good season with them."

Peterborough, who start the new campaign with a home game against Huddersfield Town, have reached the League One play-offs in the last two seasons.
