Stags’ boss David Flitcroft has today bolstered his squad with the loan signing of left-sided central midfielder Timi Elšnik from Derby County until the end of the season.
The Slovenian youth international reunites with the Mansfield manager after impressing on loan at Swindon last season, playing 26 times and scoring five goals.
Speaking of the 20-year-old, David Flitcroft said: “Timi is a player I worked very closely with at Swindon.
“He is a midfielder with a high quality passing range, creative in his work and who has the ability to score goals from midfield.
“He is one of the best young professionals I have had the pleasure of working with and has great core values as a person. He is an extremely committed professional.”
The manager added: “I felt it important to bolster the squad following the news of our international call-ups as well as the possibility of us being without Jacob Mellis.”
Elšnik has been allocated squad number 20.
Meanwhile, David Flitcroft has confirmed that business has now been concluded at One Call Stadium, both incomings and outgoings.
