We are delighted to announce that Solomon Taiwo has signed for Mansfield Town.
The 27-year-old, who featured in our reserve team victory over Gateshead at One Call Stadium on Wednesday night, was a free agent after being released by Cardiff City in the summer.
Taiwo made 12 appearances in three seasons for the Bluebirds, but first made his name in English professional football during a two-year stint at Dagenham & Redbridge.
The combative midfielder played a pivotal role for the Daggers as they narrowly missed out on a place in the League Two play-offs in 2009.
Lagos-born Taiwo, who will wear the number 35 shirt for us, is also available for selection this afternoon, as we head to the R Costings Abbey Stadium to face Cambridge United.
