The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP PREVIEWS - By Char­lie Peat

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.”
