Notts County and Mansfield Town keen on move for 27-year-old

Notts County and Mansfield Town are keen on Salford City centre-back Theo Vassell, according to reporter Pete O’Rourke on X.

Notts County and Mansfield Town are both being linked with a swoop for the League Two defender this summer. He has been on the books at the Peninsula Stadium since 2021 and has been a key player for his current club since then.

Vassell, 27, has made 115 appearances for the Ammies in all competitions, 32 of which came last season, and he has chipped in with five goals from the back. However, his long-term future in the North West is now up in the air amid links to some other Football League clubs ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

According to journalist O’Rourke on X, he has emerged on the radar of the Magpies and the Stags as they both look to strengthen their squads over the next couple of months. League One side Lincoln City have also been credited with an interest.

Who is this?

Notts County conceded way too many goals in the last campaign and need to tighten things up at the back.

They could see Vassell as someone to help boost that particular department as they prepare for their first full term with Stuart Maynard at the helm.

As for Mansfield Town, they won promotion from the fourth tier along with Stockport County, Wrexham and Crawley Town and will be aiming to add some more bodies to their ranks.

Vassell may have been identified by the Stags as a player to add more competition and depth to their defensive department.

The Stoke-born man started his career with non-league side Hanley Town before Stoke City came calling in 2006.

He then rose up through the academy ranks of the Potters and represented his local team at various different youth levels before heading out the exit door in 2015.

Story so far

Vassell was snapped up by Oldham Athletic after leaving the bet365 Stadium and has since had spells at Walsall, Chester, Gateshead, Port Vale, Macclesfield Town and Wrexham.

He joined Salford City three years ago and has made them his home over recent times.

However, he needs to weigh up his situation with Karl Robinson’s side as other teams show an interest in tempting him away.

The Ammies finished down in 20th place in the 2023/24 season and will be aiming for much better next year.
