Goalkeeper Josef Bursik believes Rovers can do big things in 2020/21 after he put pen to paper on a season-long loan deal.
The 20-year-old has impressed at parent club Stoke City who gave him a new three and a half year deal in January but with game time important, he says joining Rovers was a no brainer.
“This deal has been in the pipeline for a couple of weeks now so it feels really, really good to get it over the line,” he said.
“The Gaffer rang me a few weeks ago and let me know that he was interested. It’s good to feel wanted and as soon as I heard of the interest it was a no brainer for me to come here.
“I just want to hit the ground running and the gaffer has highlighted his ambitions to me which I’m in tune with.
“It’s a great league and I think we can do big things this year.”
Bursik trained with the squad for the first time on Thursday and got to meet up with the squad for the first time.
“It was a great level of training and a really nice training ground as well. It’s been good, I’ve settled in really quickly I think,” he added.
“All the boys have been really welcoming, the gaffer and all the staff so it’s been great I just can’t wait to get started playing games.”
