Olowu signs new deal at Rovers

1 December 2021

Joseph Olowu has put pen to paper on a new deal at Rovers until the summer of 2023.

The young centre back, who was released by Arsenal in the summer, has impressed since signing an initial short-term deal in September.   

Sealing Olowu’s services was a target for the club’s recruitment team who feel the 22-year-old fits the club’s ethos and playing style.   

James Coppinger – who plays a vocal role in the recruitment team – said: “We know the attributes a Doncaster Rovers centre back should have, and Joseph’s strong character, willingness to improve, and his performances on the pitch make him someone that we believe can have a bright future with this club.  

“We don’t want to be a club that is always rebuilding – we have a clear idea of what a Doncaster Rovers team should look like and I’m working closely with the manager, Graham [Younger, talent identification manager] and the board so we can build something that everyone associated with the club can be proud of.”    

Manager Richie Wellens added: “We believe we’ve got a great young centre back in Joseph. He has all the attributes to go really far in the game and we believe he could develop into a key player for us.   

“His attitude on and off the pitch has been first class since he arrived, and we’re delighted that he sees his future here with us.”
