Midfielder Jeando Fuchs has joined Peterborough with Dundee United receiving an undisclosed six-figure fee for the player.
Fuchs had become a key player at Tannadice and had attracted the attention of a number of clubs as he moved into the last six months of his contract.
United have cashed in on the player now, with Fuchs leaving Tayside after making 44 appearances for the Tangerines.
Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson admitted he had tried to sign the Cameroon international and was delighted to get a deal done this month.
“We enquired about him in the summer, but couldn’t get it over the line,” Ferguson told his club’s website.
“He gets up against people, he is tenacious, so good at intercepting things. There are areas we can improve him on and I have spoken to him this morning about that.
“His attitude was first class, it was never about money or anything like that, he drove down last night and I really liked how keen he was to come to us.”
