Stevenage interested in Mr Bean

Boro set their sights on midfielder about to be shown the door by Brentford

Stevenage are interested in signing Marcus Bean, the current Brentford midfielder who will be available on a free transfer this summer.

A former QPR and Blackpool player, Bean has been told he will not be offered a new contract when his current deal expires at the end of June.

Hammersmith-born Bean, 27, told the press in March that he wanted to stay with the Bees but will now be shown the door after three years at the club.
