Mansfield Town have signed striker Danny Johnson from Leyton Orient on a two-year contract.

The 28-year-old forward scored 20 goals in League Two last season.

Manager Nigel Clough said: "We needed a goalscorer and that's where Danny fits the bill.

"We were impressed with the variety of goals he scored last season, with not too many situations and chances created for him. At 28, I think he's in his prime in terms of scoring goals."

Orient, who finished five places above Mansfield in 11th last season, had offered Johnson a new deal.
