Stags eye striker deal

Last Updated: Fri, 15 Nov 2013 15:18

Mansfield are talking to Stoke in the hope they can extend the loan stay of young Potters striker James Alabi.

The 18-year-old has yet to break into the first-team set-up at the Britannia Stadium but he is getting regular action while on loan at Mansfield.

"We are speaking to Stoke consistently and I'd like to spend a bit more time with him," Town boss Paul Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham. "I think the kid could really light up this division.

"The kid is full of potential. As the supporters at Southend saw in the 20-minute appearance he made for us, he is going to be a handful.

"We are speaking to Stoke consistently and have enquired about his availability. Stoke are talking within their camp and seeing what's best for the lad."
