Grant McCann believes new signing Jermaine Anderson will add something different to his Rovers side.
He said: “Jermaine is a good player, the fans will like him and he has really good energy in the midfield area.
“He was someone we looked at in the early part of the window and wanted to get the timing right on it, I think it’s the right move for us.
“He’s ready to come into the squad whenever he’s called upon, his physicality is something different to what we have in the squad.”
Having worked with the midfielder at London Road, McCann says he has added a strong character to the Rovers dressing room.
He added: “He can keep the ball and move people around, it wasn’t long ago that he was being linked with a big money move.
“He can complement what is already here, he’s very forward thinking but can play in a number of different systems.
“He knows a few of the lads already from different places so it will be easy for him to settle in, we’re delighted to be able to bring him here.”
You can see Jermaine in action against Portsmouth at the Keepmoat Stadium this weekend, tickets are available from the Club Doncaster Box Office, on 01302 762576 or at tickets.clubdoncaster.co.uk
