Stags' boss Adam Murray snapped up Nottingham Forest defender Alex Iacovitti on a season-long loan deal on deadline day following the injury sustained by Kyle Howkins.

The versatile defender has progressed through the ranks at The City Ground and made his senior debut in the Reds’ 4-3 opening day victory over Burton Albion earlier this month. 

Comfortable at both centre-half and left-back, Iacovitti has represented Scotland at under 19 level despite being born in England to an Italian father and Scottish mother.

He was an ever-present in the Forest under 18s’ side who reached the play-off semi-final and quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup two seasons ago, and went on to become a mainstay of the under 21s’ side last campaign.
