Doncaster Rovers can confirm that Ben Whiteman has joined Preston North End for a significant undisclosed fee.
The 24-year-old has been linked with Championship clubs for the past three transfer windows, but the club’s valuation had not previously been met.
Rovers has always said that it will never stand in a player’s way and Ben has made it clear that he wants to move to a higher level.
Everyone wants to thank Ben for his effort and commitment to Rovers since joining in 2017. He has been an excellent servant for the club making 159 appearances - first on loan, then as our player and more recently our captain.
Everyone at Rovers would like to wish Ben the very best with his future career.
