Weeks of speculation can now end as Rovers have confirmed they’ve signed Sheffield United midfielder, Ben Whiteman on loan.

Whiteman joins following spending last season on loan at play-off hopefuls, Mansfield Town.

He impressed during that spell and he certainly caught the eye of Rovers manager, Darren Ferguson.

The loan is a six-month loan, which means it will run out on January 1st – the day Rovers face Peterborough United.

Ben joins Danny Andrew, Niall Mason and Alex Kiwomya through the front doors of the Keepmoat.
