Mansfield Town defender Kellan Gordon and midfielder Harry Charsley have penned new contracts at One Call Stadium, the club is delighted to announce.
Gordon, who continues to impress at right-back this season, has put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal. The 23-year-old has made 22 appearances in all competitions for the Stags this term.
Attacking midfielder Harry Charsley has signed an 18-month contract. The 24-year-old has scored five goals for the club in a productive campaign so far for the former Everton player.
“I’m delighted that two of our highly-rated young players have committed themselves to the club by their signing of new contracts,” Stags’ boss Nigel Clough said.
“I think both players have played a major role in our upturn in fortunes in the last three months and this is their reward for that.”

Mansfield Town boss Nigel Clough believes he now has young players with plenty of potential at his disposal.
Clough has built up a young-looking squad with the likes of Kellan Gordon (23), Harry Charsley (24) and George Lapslie (23) all establishing themselves as first team regulars.
“You want to secure the younger players on longer contracts,” said Clough. “It's a reward for how well they have done over the last six months.
“Kellan and Harry have established themselves as first team regulars, as well as George Lapslie who we now have on a permanent contract.
“When you look at their age, they show a lot of potential. It is great for us, we get the benefits and we also have saleable assets if that is an option we chose.
“If they stay in our first team that will be the best option for us. We are trying to identify younger players and get a nucleus of a team to build around.”
