Stevenage have signed young Brentford midfielder James Ferry on a two-year-deal.

The 20-year-old trained with Boro in January after impressing against them in a reserves game and has now agreed to join the club on a permanent basis.

Ferry is Stevenage's second signing of the summer, following the arrival of Swansea City striker Alex Samuel earlier this week.

James brings energy, enthusiasm and a real high level of technical ability to the playing squad.

We identified James from Brentford B games across the season and when he played against us, we felt he was at the level we wanted and needed to improve the team.

We moved very quickly with Brentford to organise a permanent transfer who were a joy to deal with during the process.

– Darren Sarll, Stevenage manager

Meanwhile, midfielder Tom Pett has been placed on the transfer list after failing to agree a new contract.

Elsewhere, Northampton Town defender Gabriel Zakuani has been released after talks over a new deal broke down.

Peterborough United have announced their second signing of the summer from the non-league.

Stockport County forward Danny Lloyd has joined Posh on a free transfer after his deal at the National League North side expired.

25-year-old Lloyd scored 29 goals and registered 19 assists last season and joins Dover Athletic striker Ricky Miller in making the step up to League One.

The former AFC Flyde man has agreed a three-year deal at the ABAX Stadium.

It was an easy decision for me if I am honest. As soon as I heard about the interest from Peterborough, I wanted to sign. I am a player who likes to create and score goals, I am direct, quick and always want to go forward.

If I am honest, I wish pre-season was starting tomorrow because I am eager to get going. This is an opportunity for me and I am going to work extremely hard from day one.

– Danny Lloyd, Peterborough United
