MANSFIELD Town have today bolstered their attacking options ahead of their FA Cup clash with Fleetwood Town.

The Stags have agreed a fee with Oxford United for the permanent signing of striker Matt Green as well as an initial one-month loan deal with Stoke City for Louis Moult.

The powerful Green has already made a big impact during his loan spell at Field Mill having scored 10 times so far in the Blue Square Premier.

Moult (19), who impressed during a loan spell at Mansfield before a back injury ended his time at the club, has joined for one month with a view to extending his stay later.

Manager Paul Cox told “We have had preliminary talks with Matt. The Chairman and I are due to sit down next week with him with a view to finalising personal terms.”

Young striker Adam Somes, who has been prolific in the Stags Academy side, has signed a first-team contract and will also be available for the Fleetwood match.
