Striker will stay at Boro until the end of the current season

Francois Zoko has signed a new deal with Stevenage.

The striker, whose current short-term contract was due to end this week, has scored 13 times for the club this season and has now put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the current campaign.

Boro also say that Luke Freeman looks set to remain at the club, at least until the summer, as bids from two League 1 clubs have been turned down.

Chairman Phil Wallace told the club website: “We are delighted to have retained Francois and to be able to turn down bids for Luke which we feel do not accurately reflect his talent.

“The recent FA Cup success has provided some additional finances which, whilst going nowhere near to addressing the financial shortfall of 2013, have certainly helped us make these footballing decisions.“
