Former Sheffield United midfielder Michael Tonge has signed for League Two side Stevenage.

The 32-year-old, who made 292 appearances for the Blades, was most recently at Leeds but released in May.

Tonge joined Stoke from Sheffield United for £2m in 2008 and made just one league start, before loan spells at clubs including Preston and Derby.

"I'm delighted, I jumped at the chance to play some football," Tonge told the club website.external-link
