“Romain is a fantastic leader, professional and character. We are absolutely delighted to announce him as a Stevenage player. He is someone that typifies us as a club – committed, passionate and always plays with a real desire to win.

I truly believe he will be someone that the fans will love to watch because of the commitment and determination he will show every time he pulls on the Stevenage shirt.”
