Stevenage sign Arsenal forward Luke Freeman

Stevenage have completed a permanent deal for Arsenal striker Luke Freeman and signed Everton midfielder James Wallace on a month's loan.

Freeman, 19, joins Boro for an undisclosed fee and has agreed a contract until 2014.

He has been on loan at Broadhall Way since November  , playing nine times and scoring his only goal in the 6-1 Boxing Day thrashing of Colchester  .

The forward joined the Gunners for £200,000 from Gillingham in 2008  .

Wallace has made the switch to the League One side after recently returning to Goodison Park from a spell with Shrewsbury, where he played three games.

The 20-year-old has made one senior appearance for the Toffees, coming off the bench in a 1-1 Europa League draw with Sigma Olomouc.

He spent the latter part of that year sidelined by a double hernia before loan stints with Bury and Stockport.
