MANSFIELD Town boss Paul Cox has snapped up giant defender Exodus Geohaghon on an emergency loan from Darlington until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old, who stands at 6ft 5ins tall, has arrived at Field Mill with the help of the 12th Stag, who have donated £7,000 towards his wages.

Exodus recently enjoyed a three-month loan spell with League Two Dagenham & Redbridge. He has also enjoyed stints at Kettering Town, Peterborough United and Rotherham, amongst other clubs.

Speaking about signing the highly rated defender, manager Paul Cox said: “Exodus will be a good addition to our squad. He will bring size and presence and will be a commanding figure in defence.

“We needed to act quickly after John Dempster’s return to Crawley following his loan spell, but I am sure Exodus will fill the hole left by John.

“Thank you very much to the 12th Stag for enabling us to sign a player of this calibre,” he added.

Said 12th Stag co-ordinator Paul Nyland: “Many thanks to the supporters who have contributed to 12th Stag since its inception, to make this happen.”
