New Mansfield Town striker Adi Yussuf has been named in the Conference North Team of the Season.

The exciting 23-year-old striker bagged 26 goals for Oxford City last season, the club finishing sixth and within a single point of the play-offs.

A graduate of Leicester City’s academy set-up where he played regularly at youth and reserve level, the Tanzanian hot shot left the King Power Stadium four years ago to join Burton Albion.

He featured on 31 occasions in two seasons with Burton, before spending 2013/14 at Lincoln City along with loan spells with Gainsborough Trinity, Harrogate Town and Histon.

The youngster arrives at One Call Stadium with glowing references and could form an exciting front pairing with Matt Green this coming season.
