Joel Randall came through the Academy in Exeter

Championship team Peterborough United have signed Exeter City winger Joel Randall for a “seven-figure” fee.

The 21-year-old, who scored 13 goals in 45 games for League Two Grecians last season, has signed a four-year deal.

Boss Darren Ferguson said Randall was a “real talent” with “potential”.

“He’s fast, left-footed and right-footed, a good flanker and can score – everything you could want from a broad player or a number 10,” he said Association website.external link

Chairman Darragh MacAnthony said in a tweet that the figure is at least £ 1 million.

“There have been a lot of clubs looking but the owners have raised the money to bring him here,” added Ferguson

“As a football club, we have a philosophy that I believe in, to bring the best young players into the club and to develop them. Joel and Kwame [Poku], who we signed earlier this week are two of the most exciting wide players or 10s in the EFL, certainly outside of the championship. “

Randall said, “I’m very happy to have made it. I really enjoyed my time at Exeter, but I felt this was the right time in my career to take the next step and challenge myself. “

He is the newest player to join the Exeter City Academy to have been charged more than $ 1 million as of 2015.

The club previously sold Matt Grimes to Swansea City, Ethan Ampadu to Chelsea and Ollie Watkins to Brentford for seven-digit fees.

Exeter have now picked up more than £ 4 million more for Watkins after a sale clause and add-ons following his £ 28m move from Brentford to Aston Villa last summer.
