Mansfield Town manager Steve Evans won the race to sign attacking wide midfield player Matt Penney on loan from Sheffield Wednesday until the end of the season on Deadline Day in January.

The versatile 19-year-old became the Stags' first Deadline Day signing, prior to the acquisition of striker Ricky Miller.

Penney joined the Owls' academy at the age of eight and progressed through the ranks at Hillsborough before signing his first professional contract in October 2015.

After a loan spell with League One side Bradford City last season, the gifted teenager returned to Hillsborough in the summer and has featured heavily for the Owls' U23s this season, who sit top of the Premier Development League 2.

In January, Penney signed a contract extension with Wednesday - who hold high hopes for the youngster - which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2019.
