DESPITE reports he had signed for Derby County, Tom Naylor remains a Mansfield Town player until at least 2nd January.
Naylor had had trials at Pride park as well as Fulham and Burnley and looks almost certain to move to the Rams in the New Year.
But boss Paul Cox said: “Tom is a Mansfield Town player until 2nd January unless something drastic happens.
“I think everything has been agreed as far as I am aware. I was involved in the initial negotiations and both chairmen have been sorting out the deal ever since.
“I don’t know if Tom has sorted personal terms yet.”
