Transfer Window Review

2 February 2016

Who moved where for Rovers in January?

Ins
Craig Alcock – Permanent – Versatile defender Alcock made his productive loan spell from Sheffield United in to a permanent transfer early on in the window, allowing Darren Ferguson to relax regarding his defensive options with the former Yeovil and Peterborough man comfortable anywhere across the back line.

Conor Grant – Loan – Ferguson wasted little time in extending the influential Scouser’s loan from Premier League Everton until the end of the season. The 20 year old’s four goals have all come in Rovers wins.

Lynden Gooch – Loan – A diminutive but powerful attacking thinking player, Gooch made his debut in the 0-0 draw with Fleetwood and was unlucky not open his account. The former USA U20 international, from Sunderland, significantly enhances Rovers striking options.

Eddy Lecygne – Loan – A former French U19 international, Lecygne is a versatile midfielder on loan from Stoke City. He made his debut as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat to Port Vale but showed touches of quality.

Chris Neal – Loan – Neal was a deadline day arrival as emergency cover for the injured goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann. The thirty year old stopper – on loan from Port Vale – has two promotions to boot on his impressive CV.

Harry Forrester – Permanent – After two and half years in South Yorkshire, the former Brentford midfielder moved north of the border to join Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers. During his stay at Keepmoat Stadium, the 25 year old registered 11 goals in 66 appearances.

Richie Wellens – Permanent – With close to 200 appearances over two spells with Rovers, the 2008 player of the year moved to fellow League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Jack McKay – Permanent – Youngster McKay moved to Championship side Leeds United for an undisclosed fee having made 4 appearances for Rovers.

Paul McKay – Permanent – The 19 year old defender linked up with his brother at Elland Road after just one appearance in a Rovers shirt.

Gary MacKenzie – Loan – Scottish defender MacKenzie moved on deadline day to League Two Notts County on a 28 day loan in search of game time.
