The Stags youngsters have both committed their future at the club until the end of next season after impressing during first team appearances this term.

“It is great to see the players coming through the academy,” manager Nigel Clough said.

“The most efficient way to get players is produce your own and it's great to see them have extended deals.

“It has taken Jason some time to get to the first team squad and he has had to be patient with loans over the years.

“When we came in we wanted to have a good look at him and he has improved in training with the first team.

“A big part of it is feeling that you belong, he is still in the process of achieving that but the only way he will get there is by playing games."

Clough has given both players chances in the first team this season, which he believes is the only way to help them develop.

He added: “It is vital that young players must have an opportunity. A lot of people can say they aren't good enough without looking for them.

“You have to be prepared to look at them and accept mistakes and below par performances as they develop.

“If the opportunity is there we will look at players. They are there to challenge the senior players and try and get their place in the team and keep it.

“That competition is healthy and the senior players appreciate it and know they have to be on it.”
