We are delighted to announce the signing of versatile youngster Kieron Freeman, who joins us on a 93-day loan from Sky Bet Championship side Derby County.

The 22-year-old is no stranger to One Call Stadium or boss Paul Cox, having featured on nine occasions for us in the Conference Premier during a loan spell in the 2011/12 campaign.

Born locally in Arnold, Freeman is primarily a full-back, but can also play in other roles if required.

He is eligible to head straight into the squad for tomorrow's home match with Accrington Stanley.

Despite his tender years, Freeman boasts good experience, having made 25 appearances for the Rams in the second-tier, as well as spending time on loan at Notts County and Sheffield United in Sky Bet League One in recent years.

He is eligible to stay with us until midnight on Saturday 03 January.

Manager Paul Cox said: "Having worked with Kieron before, I know we are bringing someone to the club who has good qualities, both as a person and a player. He will be a quality addition to our squad.

"I'd like to note my thanks to Derby County for allowing Kieron to join us," he added.

Derby County’s Kieron Freeman has joined Sky Bet League 2 side Mansfield Town on 93-day emergency loan deal.

The 22-year-old full back returns to the One Call Stadium where he previously enjoyed a fruitful loan spell back in the 2011/12 campaign, whilst he was on the books at Nottingham Forest, and made nine appearances.

Freeman will now be in line to make his debut for the Stags in their home encounter with Accrington Stanley tomorrow afternoon.

Freeman, a Wales Under 21 international, enjoyed two loan spells away from the iPro Stadium last campaign first with Notts County, before finishing the season at Sheffield United and establishing himself in the starting line-up at Bramall Lane.

Before that, the versatile defender played seven games in a Derby shirt before heading to Meadow Lane and aiding in Shaun Derry’s successful bid to steer Notts County away from relegation.

In total he has made 27 appearances since joining the Rams from local rivals Nottingham Forest at the beginning of the 2012/13 season.
