Hastings star Jamie Fielding has turned his back on possible move to the Premier League and agreed a deal with League Two Stevenage.
TEAMtalk revealed how Fielding had been tracked by a host of top-flight and Championship sides, and he trained with Leicester at the end of the season.
Leicester were keen to take on the 19-year-old central defender, who can also play in midfield, but that would have meant him joining their youth set-up.
But Fielding, who according to the Hastings website is a cultured defender and a leader on the pitch, has decided to make the move into the Football League, where he will hope to secure first-team football from next season with Stevenage.
The League Two outfit finished the season strongly under Tunisian boss Dino Maamria to finish 10th.
