Dean Wells has left Braintree Town.

The 29-year-old Iron defender has signed for League Two side Stevenage Borough after almost three years with Braintree.

The Times was the first to publicly reveal this week that a move may be imminent and that has been confirmed today.

The club agreed to a transfer request submitted by Wells for an initial fee of £25,000, that could rise with subsequent payments for appearances, promotion and a sell-on clause.
