Since breaking into the starting line-up in September 2022, Kasimu is Farnborough’s leading goalscorer, having found the net 12 times throughout the first half of his inaugural season at this level.

The 25-year-old makes the leap into the Football League with Matt Gray’s Sutton United side who are currently mid-table in the Sky Bet League Two.

Deering was ever-present in the Farnborough team that won promotion from Pitching In Southern League Premier South in 2021/22, scoring the all-important Play-Off Final winning goal to seal the Club’s return to Step Two

The experienced midfielder made over 70 appearances in the yellow and blue, additionally starring in Boro’s memorable FA Cup run this season.

Midfielder Bradley Keetch returns for his second spell in Hampshire, joining on loan from National League Maidenhead United for the rest of the season.

Forward Chike Kandi makes the permanent move to the Easy As HGV Stadium, having departed League rivals Dover Athletic this week.

Manager Spencer Day explained: “Obviously the headline here is the sale of Hisham for an undisclosed fee. We are proud that we yet again have brought through a player to get into the Football League. We never hold a player back and had a small buy out fee which a number of Football Clubs activated in the last couple of days.

“We have a strong relationship with Sutton and have negotiated add-ons and Friendlies and wish Hisham nothing but success as a pro and are pleased we played our part. Of course, on a selfish basis we are sad to see him go but this is football.

“I’m also delighted to announce the arrival of Chike on a transfer from Dover. He has a strong National League pedigree, knows a number of our players and sees us as a great place to get going again and I know will become another popular Boro player.

“Returning for a second spell on loan is Bradley Keetch who fits well into our style of play after other midfield departures. We know he’s a quality player that fits straight in.

“Sadly we say goodbye to Sam Deering. Sam will remain in Boro folklore with his Play-Off winner, but has not had the playing time recently and we have budgets to maintain so it was mutually decided now was the time to part. We thank him for the past 18 months and wish him well moving forward.

“With a frustrating January due to the weather, I still expect another one or two in and out as we face a relentless fixture list whilst keeping the finances in check, but am confident we can continue to challenge strongly in the National League South.”
