Mansfield Town signed defender Aden Flint on a one-year contract, with the option of a further season in August 2023.

The 6ft 6in centre-back joined the club following the expiration of his loan contract at Sky Bet Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday.

Originally from Pinxton, Flint achieved promotion with the Owls via the play-offs last season.

The 34-year-old began his career at Pinxton, before joining Alfreton Town where he enjoyed a three-year spell between 2008-2011.

In January 2011, he signed for Swindon Town, achieving promotion to Sky Bet League Two in 2012.

Flint then joined Bristol City in 2013. Stags’ latest addition recorded an impressive 36 league goals during his 209 league appearances in five seasons at Ashton Gate and helped the club to promotion to the Championship, also winning the EFL Trophy in the same season in 2014-15.

His success in Bristol led to a multi-million-pound transfer to Middlesbrough in 2018. After a year in the north-east, Flint signed for Cardiff City in July 2019, making 93 appearances in the Welsh capital.

The centre-half landed a loan move to Sheffield Wednesday in October 2020 before joining the club again on loan in 2022 – having joined Stoke permanently in the summer of 2022.

Flint played nine times for Stoke in 2023/23 before making a further 21 appearances at Sheffield Wednesday, ultimately helping the Owls gain promotion to the Championship.
