Non-league striker seals Peterborough United switch after rumours of Sheffield Wednesday interest
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Star revealed earlier today that then-Chesterfield striker Kabongo Tshimanga was heading to Peterborough United after the Cambridgeshire side stumped up the fee required to trigger a release clause.
The fee is understood to be somewhere in the region of £250,000 and after confirmation of the deal by Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony will be paid on ‘obligation to buy’ terms at the end of a loan until the end of the season.
Social media was sparked with rumours of interest from Wednesday after an approach to sign QPR youngster Sinclair Armstrong hit a snag, with the Rs pulling out of talks due to the hospitalisation of forward Lyndon Dykes.
Any potential Owls pursuit of Tshimanga was left unsubstantiated.
Peterborough set about the signing of the 25-year-old as a replacement for former Owl Jack Marriott – who left the club to join Fleetwood Town for a reported £250,000 fee yesterday.

Though it is not a do-or-die priority, Wednesday are said to be on the cursory lookout for a forward that provides a different option for Darren Moore, who already has a stable of proven League One strikers at his disposal.
The promotion-chasing Owls are looking to be active on deadline day, with defensive reinforcements high on the agenda ahead of the window closure at 11pm this evening.
