Freeman returns to Stags

Posted onPosted on 3rd Oct

Mansfield Town have signed versatile left-sided player Kieron Freeman on a three-month loan from Championship side Derby County.

The 22-year-old is no stranger to One Call Stadium or boss Paul Cox, having featured on nine occasions for the club in the Conference Premier during a loan spell in the 2011/12 campaign.

Born in Arnold, Freeman is primarily a full-back, but can also play in other positions.

He has gone straight into the injury-hit squad for tomorrow’s League Two home match with Accrington Stanley.

Freeman has made 25 appearances for the Rams in the second-tier, as well as spending time on loan at Notts County and Sheffield United in Sky Bet League One in recent years.

Cox said: “Having worked with Kieron before, I know we are bringing someone to the club who has good qualities, both as a person and a player. He will be a quality addition to our squad.

“I’d like to note my thanks to Derby County for allowing Kieron to join us.”
