Nine of Ben Jefford's 13 outings for Forest Green came this season

Sutton United have signed left-back Ben Jefford from National League rivals Forest Green Rovers.

The 22-year-old has spent the last three weeks on loan at Woking, making three appearances in all competitions.

Jefford played a total of 13 times for Rovers after joining the Gloucestershire side from Welling United in January.

A gentleman's agreement means Jefford will not feature for Sutton when they host Forest Green in February.

The former Port Vale youngster could make his debut for the U's at North Ferriby United on Saturday.
