We are delighted to announce the loan signing of Nottingham Forest’s creative attacking midfielder Jorge Grant until the end of the season.
The 24-year-old recently returned from his loan spell at Sky Bet League One high-flyers Luton Town, having made 22 appearances for the Hatters this term, netting four times.
Grant is a graduate of the Nottingham Forest academy, and has made 17 Championship appearances for the Reds in his career.
He spent last season on loan at Notts County, scoring 19 times in 56 appearances in all competitions. Following an impressive campaign with the Magpies in 2017-18, Grant made the PFA League Two Team of the Year.
Stags’ boss David Flitcroft said: “When you look at the work we’ve done this season and dominated teams, along with our style of play and strategy, it is imperative that we get quality in during this transfer window.
“Jorge represents real quality in the final third and we’re talking about somebody who is clinical and productive in that top part of the pitch with assists and goals.
“The relationship he has with Tyler [Walker, on loan from Nottingham Forest] was an important factor in his signing and their link up on the pitch will be so important in moving forward.
"Jorge represents real quality in the final third and we’re talking about somebody who is clinical and productive in that top part of the pitch with assists and goals."
“Our owners and Greg [Abbott, head of football operations] have worked tirelessly on delivering this signing.
“I would like to thank the chairman and Carolyn for supporting me in delivering these two top players [Grant and Nicky Ajose] that I am sure will be a success and our supporters will love to watch.”
