Mansfield Town have sold defender Rollin Menayese to Walsall for an undisclosed fee.

The permanent transfer follows an initial loan spell at The Banks’s Stadium where the 24-year-old has made 23 appearances so far this season.

Manager Nigel Clough said: “We have quite a few options at centre-half at the moment and Rollin is playing regularly at Walsall. I think it’s good for all parties that the move has been made permanent.”


The club places on record its thanks to Rollin for his efforts whilst at One Call Stadium.

Walsall Football Club are delighted to confirm that defender Rollin Menayese has joined on a permanent deal until 2024 for an undisclosed fee from Mansfield Town.

The 24-year-old initially signed on loan in the summer and has played 25 times for the Saddlers so far this season.

Menayese has impressed during his first six months at the club and is over the moon to make the Banks's Stadium his permanent home.

"I am delighted to finally get it over the line," Menayese said.


"As soon as the manager talked about it, I was really happy and it was something that I really wanted to do.

"Overall, I think Walsall is a really good club. We have good fans, we have a good team with a good manager, good facilities and I feel like it is a good place for me to be at right now.

"I am enjoying my football and I want to carry on doing that.

"As soon as I got my opportunity to play, I have felt comfortable at the back and I want to carry on what I have been doing previously between now and the end of the season.

"It has been very good working with the manager and I am enjoying working with him. I think he understands me as a player, he knows my strengths and my weaknesses.

"Every day he is trying to improve me and he pushes me to be a better player."

Who is always late for training?

"This is an easy one. - Rollin Menayese. I have never seen so much money go into a fine kitty from one player before! He must spend a ridiculous amount a week on fines! The other day he was late. I think it was the second day in a row, and the gaffer said just fine him whatever you want. He just doesn't seem that bothered."
