George Taft: Cambridge United sign former loanee defender on two-year contract

George Taft
George Taft had three separate loan spells at Cambridge, spending much of last season at the Abbey Stadium

Cambridge United have re-signed centre-back George Taft on a two-year deal following his release by League Two rivals Mansfield Town.

The 24-year-old completes the move to the Abbey Stadium after three previous loan spells, including one goal in 29 appearances last term.

Taft joins fellow centre-half Louis Jean in joining Joe Dunne's squad.

"It's crazy - I've never heard of someone going to a club four times, but I'm pleased it's me," Taft said.

He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I'd already set my heart on coming back to the Abbey, so that was my main intention, and thankfully it's panned out."
