Boro hope to sign Lee Barnard from Southend United on loan

Stevenage are closing in on a deal to sign striker Lee Barnard on loan.

The forward currently plays for Southend United, but is set to join Boro on a one-month loan deal according to the Southend Echo.

The 30-year-old former Southampton striker has scored once for the Blues this season, and has started two of the club’s last three games.

Stevenage, who travel to Tranmere Rovers this weekend, are still without the injured Calvin Zola while fellow striker Connor Calcutt joined Wealdstone on loan last week.
