Stevenage hope to sign Southampton striker

Boro in negotiations to sign Sam Hoskins until the end of the season

Stevenage are talking to Premier League side Southampton in a bid to sign striker Sam Hoskins on loan

Boro are looking to add some firepower to their attack after a recent slump in form, and Gary Smith would like to sign Hoskins until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old played eight times on loan at Rotherham United towards the end of last season, scoring twice, and he was an unused substitute when the Saints knocked Stevenage out of the League Cup earlier this season.
