Mansfield defender Ryan Tafazolli has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

Tafazolli has impressed since returning to the side and Stags assistant manager Adam Murray insists the 22-year-old is thoroughly deserving of his new deal.

"Ryan has more than deserved his contract extension," said Murray. "Everyone can see the potential he has got and over the last few months he has matured as a person and as a player."

Tafazolli has made six appearances for Mansfield this season, all of them coming in Sky Bet League Two.
