Alex Revell has ended his stay at Northampton Town after completing a free transfer to League Two side Stevenage.

The 34-year-old striker moved to Sixfields from local rivals MK Dons in the summer of 2016 and went on to score 12 times for the Cobblers.

He had featured just three times since a red card in the 6-0 drubbing by Bristol Rovers in October and those appearances all came in the last five minutes as a substitute. Following the signings of Scunthorpe United forward Kevin van Veen and Everton attacker Boris Mathis in recent days, Revell has fallen further down the pecking.

Manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink told the club’s official website: “Alex is an excellent professional, but at this stage of his career he understandably wants and needs to be playing regular first team football,” said manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

“With the additions we have been able to make during the January transfer window, Alex’s chances would have remained limited moving forward so we believe this is a good move for all parties.”We thank Alex for his service and wish him every success at his new club.”
