Darren Moore was pleased to secure one of his main transfer targets after the arrival of forward Jon Taylor at the Keepmoat Stadium.
The 27-year-old has penned a two-year contract with Rovers and goes straight into the matchday squad for Saturday’s trip to Rochdale.
He said: “Jon is a talented player who is someone I’ve looked to bring in since my arrival, and I’m pleased we’ve been able to get him in amid interest from the Championship and clubs abroad. We’ve had to be patient, but I’m pleased to have got him in.
“The fact he has chosen to join us speaks volumes about the ambition we have at the club, he has great pedigree at this level and can go on to be a really important player for us.”
Moore is still hopeful of adding another attacking player to his squad in the coming weeks.
He added: “The board have backed me to bring in the players I want, and we’re not far off completing the jigsaw so we can all concentrate on the football.
“I was pleased with the performance against Gillingham, especially in the second half, and we can get stuck into the upcoming games with a real sense of optimism.”
