Mansfield Town have sold striker Danny Rose to League One outfit Northampton Town.
The 26-year-old, whose contract at the Stags was set to expire next June, leaves One Call Stadium after a four-year spell.
Rose is transferred to the Sixfields’ club for an undisclosed fee in a move which includes prospective incentives for Mansfield.
In a joint statement, chairman and co-chairwoman John & Carolyn Radford said: ”Danny has served Mansfield Town Football Club admirably in the last four seasons and has been a real credit to himself and his family, on and off the field.
“In the current climate, it is uncommon for a player to be given the chance to move to a club in a higher division and it would have been incorrect of us to impede Danny’s opportunity of playing at a higher level.
“The transfer is good business for Mansfield Town Football Club, both now and futuristically.
“Danny leaves the club in high regard and we wish him and his family well.”
The club would like to place on record its gratitude to Danny for his endeavours at One Call Stadium during the past four years and wishes him every success in his future career.
