The 23-year-old who won’t be offered a new contract at the end of the campagn, has had a mixed season at Luton, making just 20 appearances and has already spent time at Tamworth on loan.

He hasn’t played since the 2-1 defeat to Hyde and Hatters boss John Still said: “It’s really difficult because Greg came in for a couple of games.

“We wanted to look at everybody. He came in and probably will be a bit disappointed with his performances, he is probably better than he showed me.

“What with bringing Scott (Griffiths) in, I want to look at him towards the end of the season. With Snoops (Lathaniel Rowe-Turner) as well, at this particular moment on what he’d shown, he would be a bit too far back.”

Mansfield boss Paul Cox told the Stags’ official website: “He’s a natural left back, with good ability both in defence and going forward.

“The next eight games are important and we need to be sure that all bases are covered. He’ll be a very good addition to the squad.”
