Coventry City have agreed a deal to sign Peterborough United striker Matt Godden after a breakthrough in talks, Football Insider understands.

Portsmouth and MK Dons have been linked with moves for Godden this summer, but now Coventry have stolen in to agree a deal with Peterborough for the striker.

A Coventry source has told Football Insider that the 28-year-old is now set to undergo a medical at Coventry later today before sealing his move to the Sky Blues.

Godden’s future at Peterborough has been the subject of speculation all summer following the massive squad overhaul at London Road.

Godden, who scored 18 goals for Peterborough last season, was not involved in their opening day defeat at home to Fleetwood with Posh boss Darren Ferguson happy for him to move on.

He signed for Peterborough last summer on a three-year deal after scoring 35 goals in 88 games for Stevenage.

Coventry won their first game of the season 1-0 against Southend on Saturday.
