Stags loanee defender Freeman returns to Forest

DEFENDER Kieron Freeman has today returned to parent club Nottingham Forest following a two month loan spell with Mansfield Town.

The 19-year-old made nine starts at left-back for the Stags since making the switch from the City Ground in early November 2011.

Manager Paul Cox told  “I am hoping a deal can still be done with Forest regarding the possibility of bringing Kieron back on loan to us in the near future.

“If Kieron does stay with Forest, however, and eventually break into their first team, I would like to think we have played a big part in his development,” he added.
