Millwall have are set to complete the signing of Stevenage Borough captain Steve Morison.
A £130,000 fee has been agreed between the two sides in a deal that includes a future sell-on percentage clause.
Stevenage chairman Phil Wallace confirmed the move and reserved praise for 25-year-old striker Morison, who netted 31 goals for the Conference outfit this season.
Wallace told South London Press: "We've been in talks with Millwall for some while and Steve's finally got the move he wanted.
"For our part, we are happy with the fee and, most importantly, we retain an interest in Steve's future with a healthy sell on and further bonus payments linked to his performance.
"Steve was due a move, he's been a great servant to the club and would have been out of contract this summer if he hadn't signed a new deal.
"We made it clear at that time that we would work hard to get him a move into the League if we didn't go up.
"We're sorry to lose Steve's goals, but we can't stand in the way of our lads significantly improving their earnings if they get the chance.
"In my opinion Steve will adjust to whatever league he's in with Millwall next season and kick on again. He's a confident young man and the Championship will not faze him one bit if Millwall win at Wembley.
"We'll be following his progress with interest and on behalf of everyone at Stevenage, we wish him well in his future career."
