Curle swoops for Eaton
Keith Curle has made his first signing since taking over at Mansfield with Preston North End defender Adam Eaton arriving on loan for one month.
The 22-year-old former Everton trainee has only appeared once for the Lilywhites this season, in the 5-0 Worthington Cup hammering by Aston Villa earlier this month.
A statement on the Second Division strugglers' official site read: "Adam should bring with him the qualities that we have been lacking in our backline, and with Curle wanting to forge a squad with a backline containing a goal-stopping four, he could prove to be the vital link."
