Outgoing Yeovil Town winger Otis Khan has sent his farewells, following his summer move to League Two rivals Mansfield Town. The 22 year old headed out the door yesterday, after two seasons at the club, and 87 appearances, that saw him attract the attention of a number of Championship and League One sides, albeit without any of that interest reaching fruition.
Prior to Khan's arrival at Yeovil, his first team appearances for professional clubs amounted to two games for Sheffield United, followed by three substitute appearances for Barnsley, thus meaning that the Glovers were the first club to give him regular games in their starting line-up. Khan thanked those associated with Yeovil Town for the support he had received whilst he was in Somerset:
"Today marks the end of a chapter and the start of a new exciting one. It wouldn't be right without me extending my thanks to everyone at Yeovil Town Football Club. I've had an amazing time and made great friends along the way. I can't thank you enough and will never forget all the support I received."
Khan will stay in League Two, signing for a club that finished in 8th position in the table during the 2017-18 season, missing out on a play-off position on the final weekend of the campaign. He said his ambition was to help get the Stags promoted whilst he was there:
"The next chapter is a very exciting one, and I'm more hungry than ever to repay everyone at Mansfield Town Football Club, including the owners, managers and fans. I assure you I will give my absolute all to get this club promoted and ensure I wear the badge with pride. I'm totally focussed on achieving the success the club deserves. Now time to put in the hard work on the pitch."
