Houghton seals Rovers return

31 August 2017

Jordan Houghton is raring to go after completing a loan return to Doncaster Rovers.

The 21-year-old midfielder made 36 appearances for Rovers in the 2016/17 promotion-winning campaign, before returning to parent club Chelsea for treatment on a knee injury.
He will now come back to the Keepmoat Stadium on loan until January 3 2018.
He said: “I’m really excited to be back. It has been a long road to recovery, but I have come through it now and feel strong.
“I’ve played a few times for Chelsea’s U23 side and feel very good, I can’t wait to get going.”
Houghton was a regular at Rovers’ games even after his loan, and said the welcome he received from supporters played a big part in him agreeing to return.
He added: “There were other clubs interested, but I felt it was right for everyone really to come back here after so much success last season.
“I really enjoyed it. A lot of fans on social media and at games have been good to me, and I felt I wanted to come back and be part of it again.”

To see Jordan and the rest of the squad in Rovers' next home game against Peterborough, tickets are available from the Club Doncaster Box Office now. You can call in at the Keepmoat Stadium, call us on 01302 762576 or shop round the clock at
