Frontman Omari Sterling-James has signed from Solihull Moors on a free transfer.

The 23 year old has mostly played as a winger for the West Midlands side in the National League, but Steve Evans has other plans for him.

Manager Steve Evans told the official Mansfield Town website “I do see Omari as a striker and not as a wide player, although he can be deployed in a wide area very effectively, should we decide to utilise him in that position.”

The striker, or frontman whoever you talk to, scored nine goals last term and causes defenders problems with his electric pace.

Moors boss Liam McDonald was rumoured to have offered Sterling-James a new deal ahead of the new season.

Evans went further into detail on how the transfer came about ‘It was clear that Solihull, Omari’s former club, wanted a transfer fee for the player, but after being made aware of what could best be described as an administration error, I learned that Omari was available for clubs to speak to him with no transfer fee involved.’

How the error came about, is unclear at this stage.
