Mansfield have agreed to sign former Rotherham striker Michael Boulding - and his 17-year-old brother Rory.
Michael Boulding's last league appearance came in April 2005
The senior Boulding, 30, had announced his retirement in the summer of 2005, but joined the Millers last season without making a first-team appearance.
Both players have impressed Stags boss Peter Shirtliff in pre-season.
"Michael probably retired too early, and he probably regrets taking a year out, although he has kept himself fit," Shirtliff told Mansfield's website.
"Rory is one for the future, but both lads will be welcome additions to the squad."
Michael Boulding, a former junior tennis star, had a previous spell at Field Mill between 1999 and 2001, during which time he scored 12 goals in 65 league appearances.
