Stevenage have signed former Norwich City academy defender Kevin Lokko after triggering his release clause at National League side Maidstone United.

The 21 year old centre-back, who is an England C international, played 46 games for Maidstone last season.

Lokko also had a spell at Colchester earlier in his career but is yet to make an appearance in the Football League.

Many will be surprised by the timing of this but Kevin’s attracted a lot of interest in recent months and I can more than understand why a league club would take a punt on him.

We of course wish him all the best and thank him for his efforts during last season.

– Jay Saunders, Maidstone United manager

Meanwhile, Southend United have signed 19-year-old French forward Amadou Ba following a successful trial.

Ba has agreed a two-year deal at Roots Hall.

Fellow Shrimpers striker Theo Robinson has also committed his future to the club by agreeing a one-year contract extension.
