League Two news roundup: 15-22 February 2018

Joe Jones

What's been happening in League Two over the last week?

Here is Pride of Nottingham's round-up of the biggest League Two news from the last seven days.

- The proposal to close the EFL's summer window early will be voted on by all 72 teams from the three divisions at Villa Park on Thursday. The proposal is for the window to close at 5pm on August 9. The loan window would stay open until August 31.

- Phil Brown, former manager of Derby County, Hull City, Preston North End and Southend United, has reportedly turned down the opportunity to take the reins at Grimsby Town. The 58-year-old is without a club, having ended a near five-year stay at Southend when he was put on gardening leave on 17 January.

- Dover Athletic have signed defender Kevin Lokko from Stevenage on loan until the end of the season. The 22-year-old has made only two substitute appearances for Boro, after joining them from Maidstone for an undisclosed fee last August, and spent much of this season on loan at Dagenham & Redbridge, making 25 appearances before being recalled earlier this month.

- Yeovil Town have signed former Notts County goalkeeper Stuart Nelson until the end of the season. The 36-year-old left Gillingham by mutual consent on 31 January after making more than 220 appearances for them.

- Newport County defender David Pipe has had his contract extended for another season after triggering an appearance clause in his current deal. The 34-year old has been rewarded with the extension having already played 35 games this season.

- Also at Newport, defender Jazzi Barnum-Bobb had his contract cancelled by mutual consent. The 22-year-old has made over 40 appearances for the Exiles.
