Northampton Town have signed Mansfield Town striker Danny Rose for an undisclosed fee. Rose has signed a 2 year contract at the PTS Academy Stadium with the option for a third year.
The 26 year old Rose began his career with his hometown club of Barnsley, where he made 18 appearances, the majority of which came in the Championship, before he joined Bury on loan.
After a successful loan spell, he made the move to the Shakers permanent, scoring 20 times in a two year stay before moving to Mansfield Town in the summer of 2016.
He found the net 44 times for the Stags as he started 113 games.
His performances at Mansfield led to him becoming a fans favourite and he was named the players player of the season in 2017/18.
"We are adding a player to the squad who has scored consistently throughout his career so far and someone who can play in a number of positions across the forward line," said manager Keith Curle.
"He has a good work ethic and I like his character. He is a player who used to annoy the life out of me when he played against me and my teams so I am delighted he will be in our dressing room now! He is the sort of character you love to have on your side.
"Danny is a player who I think will build up a real rapport with the fans here as I know he did with the supporters at Mansfield.
"He is a striker at an excellent age with some good experience and that is a good fit for our squad.
“We also really appreciate what the board have done too as they committed to continue with our budget plans even through these uncertain times with crowds not allowed in to matches and they have backed this up with the signing of Danny.”
