Mansfield have signed 31-year-old midfielder Paul Bolland on a two-year deal after he turned down a new contract at Macclesfield Town.

Bolland has made over 400 appearances for Bradford, Notts County, Grimsby and Macclesfield, and was voted players' player of the season at Moss Rose.

He told the Stags' website  : "I've met [manager] Paul Cox a couple of times and you can tell he's a winner.

"That is what attracted me and what I want to be a part of."

Bolland spent two years at Macclesfield and scored three goals.

Former Eastwood Town boss Cox took over at Field Mill last month, and Bolland is his third signing.
