Mansfield Town’s leading goalscorer Danny Rose has signed a new contract with the club, which will keep him at One Call Stadium until the end of the 2019/20 season, we are delighted to announce.
Moreover, at the expiration of his new contract, the club has the option to extend it by a further year.
The Barnsley-born frontman has netted 13 goals in all competitions this season to help the Stags to their current 7th place in Sky Bet League Two, just two points from third position.
The 24-year-old, who joined the club from Bury in May 2016, has improved considerably since Steve Evans became Mansfield boss in November 2016.
Now a fans’ favourite at the club, Rose is widely believed to be one of the hottest properties in Sky Bet League Two.
"I’m absolutely delighted that young Danny has signed an extended contract and I’m very grateful to Carolyn Radford [chief executive officer] for getting this over the line."
After putting pen to paper, boss Steve Evans told www.mansfieldtown.net: “I’m absolutely delighted that young Danny has signed an extended contract and I’m very grateful to Carolyn Radford [chief executive officer] for getting this over the line.
“I pointed it out to the Radford family back in the summer, that if Danny progressed as much as I thought he would, then we should be securing him with a contract that keeps the wolves from the door.
“In the past week, we have already turned down offers from two high-end League One clubs [for Danny] so from that respect, this new contract is positive news for our supporters.
“When I arrived at the football club, Danny was obviously not a key part of the team, but I remembered the kid from his early days at Barnsley and latterly with Bury and I always thought highly of him.
"I often said to Paul Raynor ‘if we can get the best out of Danny Rose then he’s going to be one hell of a player, because I know he’s got it in the tank’.
“In fairness to the player himself - and with slight applause to Paul Raynor – Danny is the one who is responsible for producing some top performances which for me make him one of the best three strikers in Sky Bet League Two.”
