Mansfield Town manager Steve Evans has confirmed today that his side have pulled out of the race to sign Scunthorpe United striker, Tom Hopper.

Reports last week suggested that the Stags had offered Hopper a contract, after having a bid accepted by the Iron, and were allowing the player time to mull it over with his agent and family.

However, in Evans' press conference this morning, he confirmed that the 23-year-old had turned down their offer.
The speculation was also confirmed at the Iron's end, when BBC Humberside sports reporter Mike White spoke to Graham Alexander.

It was also made apparent that although a move to Mansfield may be off the cards, there are still other parties interested.
The full interview between Graham and Mike can be found below:
