EVANS IS ON TRAIL OF HIS A-TEAM
STEVE Evans is wasting no time in putting together his new-look Mansfield side for next season and is targeting A-list players only.
The Stags boss is aiming to make all of his big signings before the end of May and will be chatting with possible targets as soon as possible.
“I will be meeting players next week,” the former Rotherham boss said.
“In terms of the permanent signings, there will be very few done in the latter part of the window. The majority will be done in the next two or three weeks.
“Certainly if I am here, that will be the case. I think if you are a management team and you are dragging your signings into July and August, that tells me you don’t know what you’re doing.
“We have no B-listers. Everyone we go for, I am sure if we go there properly we’ll attract them.
“We all have lists of certain players we’d like to sign. We are not going to be a club that’s chasing a player for five weeks and keep giving him time because his agent is ringing up every other club trying to get him a deal.”
