Mansfield sign striker Cook from Walsall
Mansfield have signed striker Andy Cook from League Two rivals Walsall for an undisclosed fee.
The 28-year-old, who scored 18 goals in League One last season despite the Saddlers’ relegation, has joined the Stags on a two-year deal.
Town manager John Dempster said: ‘I’m really appreciative of the chairman (John Radford) who has supported this signing and to Carolyn (Radford, CEO) for getting the deal over the line.
‘Andy’s a player who I have admired from both playing against him and watching him.
‘He’ll bring a physical presence to our attacking play which I think we’ve been lacking since the injury to Craig Davies, who himself is working hard to get back to full fitness.
‘We have fought hard to capture Andy’s signature due to the high interest in him from other clubs, both in this division and League One.’
