Rovers sign Joe Dodoo

6 September 2021

Rovers have completed the signing of experienced striker Joe Dodoo on a two-year deal.

The 26-year-old arrives having made more than 100 appearances in the English game.

Dodoo started his career with Leicester City, where he worked with current Rovers boss Richie Wellens at the King Power Stadium.

He left the Foxes to join Scottish giants Rangers in 2016, and went on to make 24 appearances during his time at Ibrox, and also spent periods on loan at Charlton Athletic and Blackpool respectively. 

The 6ft front-man has spent the past two seasons in Sky Bet League One with Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic, and scored for both clubs against Rovers in each of his outings at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He scored four goals and assisted a further three in 12 starts for the Latics last season.

Dodoo could make his Rovers debut in the Papa John’s Trophy tie at home to Rotherham United on Tuesday night.
