Peterborough United have rewarded striker Dwight Gayle by making his loan move from Dagenham & Redbridge permanent.

The 22-year-old has scored five times in six games, finding the back of the net in the last four matches, and will join Posh permanently next month for a fee of £500,000.

I want to improve and I believe I can do that here.

Gayle believes he has joined the right club with which to further his career.

"I am delighted that everything went well, I have really enjoyed my time at the club during my loan spell and I am very pleased to be staying," he told the club's official website.

"I want to improve and I believe I can do that here."

Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson, whose side prop up the Championship table and are 13/8 to be relegated, was pleased to have secured the player's signature.

"Dwight has done very well, and him and Lee Tomlin have formed an effective partnership," he added.

"They have caused a lot of problems and long may that continue. I am pleased that everything has been sorted out and credit to the chairman for providing the finance for the deal."

Peterborough are 14/1 to beat Wolves 2-1 on Boxing Day, while a 2-2 draw can be backed at 11/1.
