The 20-year-old, from North Yorkshire, made two appearances for Ian Baraclough’s team in 2014/15 after joining them on a free transfer midway through the season.

On his signing for the club, Thomas said: “Adam Murray [the manager] sold the club really well to me, with the style of football he wants to play and where he wants to take the club. I think he wants a youthful approach this season, with loads of energy, playing with wide men and playing football by passing the ball and playing it through the sections of the pitch – it’s how I was brought up to play football, the proper way."

Manager Adam Murray said: “Nathan is somebody who was with us for a month at the end of last season [on trial].

“He's a direct quick winger with a superb left foot which can create and he has a goal in him. As a person he is hungry and has a point to prove. He knows that he has to maximise his potential and we will help him to do this. It's an opportunity for Nathan and with hard work and the right attitude I believe he can be special.”

The 28-year-old has signed a permanent deal to return to One Call Stadium.

Both myself and the chairman have thought long and hard in order to beat off competition from League One and Championship clubs to capture the signature of Matt Green. It’s a statement of our intent going into next season and it’s great to have him back on board. I thank the chairman for making this happen.

The Stags have also signed left-back Malvind Benning on a free transfer.
