Simon Grand and Rhys Day join Mansfield Town

Mansfield Town

Mansfield Town have completed the signings of Fleetwood Town defender Simon Grand and Oxford United defender Rhys Day on loan until January.

Grand, 26, has joined with a view to a permanent move.

Manager David Holdsworth told BBC Radio Nottingham: "He's a tough guy, he will add another bit of quality.

"He can play left-back, so he's a versatile defender. He won't accept second best and he likes putting his head in where it hurts."

Grand said: "It's come from me not being able to break into the team at Fleetwood.

"So, when the opportunity arose to come and get some games at such a good club, I couldn't afford to turn it down."

Former Stags defender Day, 28, has struggled this season with a knee injury and is yet to feature for the U's in League Two.

Oxford manager Chris Wilder told BBC Radio Oxford: "It's good for him and good for Mansfield.

"They're getting a really decent player, who's won the league with Aldershot and got promoted with us, so I wish him all the best."
