Former Swindon Town loanee Dan Kemp has joined League One outfit Stevenage after turning down the chance to return.

As revealed by The Adver, Swindon had attempted to bring back last season's Player of the Season following his release from Milton Keynes Dons, making a "significant offer" to the 16-goal midfielder.

However, it was always the intention of Kemp to move up to League One after impressing in the fourth-tier with both Town and Hartlepool United the previous campaign.

Kemp has opted for a different homecoming as he has joined up with ex-Swindon striker Alex Revell in joining Stevenage, signing a two-year deal at the Lamex Stadium.

The 25-year-old had a brief spell on loan at Stevenage whilst he was with West Ham United, getting his first taste of EFL football as he arrived on loan in January 2020, scoring once in six appearances.

He becomes Boro's second summer signing, having already added Northampton Town attacker Louis Appere and Revell told the club website that he was excited by the additional firepower.

He said: “Dan is a player we specifically targeted to add to the group we have. He has been prolific whilst on loan in League Two and we’re delighted to welcome him back.”
