Mansfield Town is delighted to confirm the signing of defender Will Forrester on loan from Stoke City.
The 20-year-old joins the Stags until 09 January 2022.
Forrester, who can play in the centre of defence or at right back, is a regular for the Potters’ under-23s.
He marked his first team debut with a goal against AFC Bournemouth on the final day of the 2020/21 campaign.
He is currently continuing rehabilitation following an ankle injury and is expected to be available in around two weeks.
After signing, Forrester said: “I’m grateful to the manager [Nigel Clough] for giving me this opportunity and can’t wait to get started at the club.
“As soon as I heard of Mansfield’s interest, my mind was made up. They were my first choice of club who I wanted to go on loan to.
“I’m looking forward to working hard in training and in games, if and when I get my chance.”
On his playing style, he added: “I love to defend; making blocks and tackles. That’s my priority. Alongside that I like to have the ball at my feet, step into midfield and break the lines with my passing.”
