Frontman Kane Hemmings signed from Oxford United on a season-long loan in August 2017.
The gaffer, Steve Evans, fought off interest from a large number of clubs, with work starting as early as May to make this deal come to fruition.
An outstanding capture, Hemmings has a goal ratio of almost one in every two games played, having netted 53 goals in 106 appearances during his career and joins the Stags after helping Oxford to an eighth-placed League One finish last season.
As a youngster, Hemmings spent three years with Tamworth before moving north of the border to join Rangers. After joining at 17, Hemmings appeared in three consecutive Scottish Youth Cup finals and went on to captain the under 19s.
He signed a new three-year contract in 2010 and made his first team debut in the Champions League qualifier against Malmo FF.
In January 2013, Hemmings went out on loan to Cowendbeath, where he scored four goals in seven games before he made the move permanent at the end of the season.
The frontman enjoyed a superb 2013/14 season with the Cowden and was named as the PFA Scotland Championship Player of the Year. During that season, he scored the winning goal in the second leg of the relegation final against League One side Dunfermline, maintaining Cowdenbeath's Championship status.
He left Cowdenbeath and moved back to England, joining then-League One side Barnsley on a free transfer before moving back to Scotland with Dundee a year later.
Hemmings excelled whilst with the Dee and scored more than 20 goals in the Scottish Premiership, leading to Oxford United snapping him up in July 2016.
He signed for the U's for an undisclosed six-figure fee, penning a three year deal.
