Striker Idris Kanu joined the Wood from Peterborough United, on a long-term loan. Kanu was one of the most exciting teenage strikers to have come out of the National League in recent seasons, the now 19-year-old joined The Posh from fellow National League outfit Aldershot Town, in the summer of 2017. A pacey frontman, with an eye for goal, Kanu came through the academy at West Ham United, before joining the Shots, where he signed his first professional deal.
Kanu netted four times for Aldershot, before being snapped up by Peterborough United. He has also previously been on trial with Manchester United. The 19-year-old enjoyed a short-term loan with League Two outfit Port Vale earlier this season, before being recalled by his parent club. He will now link up with his new teammates, ahead of the game against Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.
