Mansfield Town have strengthened their ranks with the signing of versatile player Corey O’Keeffe.
The 22-year-old, who played at wing-back for Macclesfield Town last season, has penned a two-year contract at One Call Stadium.
O’Keeffe also has experience in defence for his home-town club Birmingham City, where he was schooled since 2008.
The ex-Blues’ man has 19 caps for Republic of Ireland at under 17, 18 and 19 levels.
Manager Graham Coughlan told www.mansfieldtown.net: “Corey has a bright future ahead of him.
“He had a really good season on loan at Macclesfield last season. He has a wise head on young shoulders and offers us great energy, enthusiasm and can cover a number of positions.”
O’Keeffe added: “I’m delighted to sign for Mansfield Town. It is a club with an excellent infrastructure and the manager has already made a number of really impressive signings ahead of the new season.
“I can’t wait to get started. I’m ready now to go into the squad and work hard.”
