Mansfield Town have signed attacking midfielder Matt Penney on loan until the end of the season from Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The 19-year-old has yet to play for the Owls' first team, but recently signed a new deal until the summer of 2019 and was on loan at Bradford last season.

The Stags have also signed striker Ricky Miller on loan from Peterborough for the rest of the 2017-18 campaign.

The 28-year-old has failed to find the net in 13 games this season.

Stags manager Steve Evans described Penney as a "very talented" player.

"He plays very stylishly in either wide area after being developed at Wednesday as an attacking full-back," Evans said.

Meanwhile, midfielder Calum Butcher, 26, has joined Isthmian League Premier Division leaders Billericay Town on loan until the end of the season.
