Mansfield Town have signed midfielder Simon Heslop.

Heslop joins the Stags on a free transfer after leaving Stevenage where he made 27 appearances in Sky Bet League One last season.

Prior to his one-year spell with Boro, the 27-year-old enjoyed a three-year stint at Oxford and played over 100 matches for the U's.

"[Supporters] can expect to see a lot of hard-work from me," Heslop told Mansfield's official website. "My fitness levels are usually 'up there' and I should be getting up and down the pitch well.

"I won't shirk a challenge and I'd like to think I'm decent on the ball."
