During the 2014/15 campaign he spent a month on loan at Tranmere Rovers, making 4 starts. His only goals for the club came AFC Wimbledon and his brace helped Rovers to a point.
He also had a short loan spell with Oxford United, with whom he made 4 substitute appearances without scoring.
At the beginning of this season Armand played 11 games for Chesterfield without finding the net.
He joined Stevenage initially on a one-month loan deal that was later extended. Overall he scored 6 goals in 16 appearances, which includes the brace he scored against the O’s at the beginning of the month.
