Former Mansfield Town striker Chris Tate is poised to sign for a Swedish Division Two club in the new year.

Tate, who joined the Stags on a three-month deal at the start of the season, was released after an injury-plagued spell at Field Mill.

"John Gannon helped me make contact with a Division Two team there," said Tate, who has a Swedish girlfriend.

"But I can't remember the name of the team!"

Tate is hopeful he will be fit to join his new club for pre-season in February.

His last appearance for Mansfield was in the 4-0 defeat against Preston in the Carling Cup.

He came on as a substitute but was replaced a few minutes later after he landed awkwardly and damaged knee ligaments.
