Academy manager John Morling said, “Jeff came to us with football league experience already having made over 20 starts for Preston, so for his development it is important he continues to be in a competitive first-team football environment.”
Monakana is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Seagulls but did spend the first half of this season on loan at Scottish Premier League side Aberdeen, making 10 substitute appearances.
Mansfield currently sit in 18th place in League Two, five points clear of the relegation zone.
