Mansfield Town have signed Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Dimitar Evtimov on a six-month loan deal and have released fellow stopper Cameron Belford.

Bulgarian Evtimov, 21, played for the Stags in a pre-season friendly and will now embark on his first loan spell at a Football League club after a spate of stints at non-league clubs.

To make room for their new goalkeeper, Mansfield confirmed Belford, who had penned non-contract terms, would be seeking employment elsewhere.
