mansfieldtown.net, 27th August 2012, 2pm

Manager Paul Cox has spoken about the potential transfer of Exodus Geohaghon to Mansfield Town Football Club.


Our boss, who was speaking ahead of this afternoon's Blue Square Bet Premier clash against Grimsby Town, hopes that the potential deal can be concluded soon.

He said: “For the past seven days we have been talking to Kidderminster Harriers about Exodus.”

“The deal is still in its infancy stage and anything can happen yet, but we have enquired about his services and we are looking to do a deal.

“We're hoping that something can be done over the next few days, but things are still at an early stage.”

Geohaghon made 15 appearances for us whilst on loan at the One Call Stadium from Darlington last season

Byrne out long-term while Skipper may depart....

Steve Burr has confirmed that defender Exodus Geohaghon has stated his desire to join fellow Blue Square Bet Premier side Mansfield Town.

Geohaghon did not travel with the squad to Dartford on Saturday and, speaking after the game, Burr revealed that the player has been made an offer by the Stags that Geohaghon would like to accept.

“We spoke to Exodus yesterday and Mansfield have spoken to him about joining them,” confirmed Burr.

“I asked him what he wanted to do and he said the offer from Mansfield was too good to turn down.

“I want players who want to play here and I thought young Chey Dunkley did a good job today – I felt a bit sorry for him because he's come into a side that is struggling but he did very well.”

Harriers look set to lose another big name in the shape of midfielder Jack Byrne who left the pitch at Dartford on a stretcher during the second half.

Burr added: “He has got a ruptured Achillies and has just gone off to hospital – he's going to be out for a while now.”


Captain stuns Harriers as Byrne faces lengthy lay-off

Harriers look set to lose captain Exodus Geohaghon after he expressed a wish to join Blue Square Bet Premier rivals Mansfield.


The defender was not in the squad as the Aggborough outfit slipped to their fourth straight loss at Dartford.

His replacement in the side Chey Dunkley was impressive on his Conference Premier debut.

But afterwards, a disappointed Burr revealed Mansfield had made an offer Geohaghon wanted to accept.

That is a kick in the teeth for Harriers, who moved heaven and Earth to attract the former Kettering defender this summer and even made him captain.

With Geohaghon contracted until summer 2013, Harriers will be in a strong position to demand a fee for the want away defender.

Burr said: "Mansfield have spoken to him about joining them and I asked him what he wanted to do and he said it was too good an offer to turn down.

"I only want players who want to be at the club and I thought young Chey Dunkley did a good job."

In a further setback, midfielder Jack Byrne is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after rupturing his Achilles. Byrne had been playing well but after an innocuous fall, had to be stretchered off
