Gary McSheffrey is thrilled that youth product Tavonga Kuleya has signed a two-year deal with the club.
McSheffrey worked with Kuleya while they were in the U18s set-up, and the Rovers boss always saw potential in the attacker.
He said: "I'm delighted for him, he's come back from a shoulder injury, and he's come back this summer and played and trained well and grafted for this opportunity.
"He has got something different to others. When I had him in the U18s I challenged him all the time to add more goals and assists to his game.
"He's very exciting on the eye and physically he's developing well. In a couple of years, I can see him being a strong, physical, fast man."
