Ollie Younger spoke to the media following his arrival from Sunderland on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old centre back will wear No.3 and could be involved on the weekend when Gary McSheffrey’s men travel to MK Dons.
On joining Rovers:
“I’ve got past that stage in my career where it’s all about learning and now I need to be on the pitch doing these things myself. Doncaster have presented me with a great opportunity to do so I’m buzzing to be here.
“I’ve had a bit of a frustrating week. I knew the move was happening a week ago but I’ve had COVID so we haven’t been able to get it done any sooner.
“I trained on Thursday which has helped me blow a few cobwebs off, but I feel good and ready to go.
“The gaffer has just told me to come in and give 100% but for me that’s a given anyway.”
On defensive education at Burnley Academy:
“I think everyone knows about Burnley and what they’re renowned for.
“Defensively, the coaching at Burnley is very good. They focus on the basics, as you can imagine, and I think it stands you in good stead for the future.
“I love putting my body on the line, blocking shots, defending, heading, tackling – that’s my favourite part of the game. I think I’m alright on the ball too, but first and foremost my job is to defend and I’m looking forward to doing that.”
On preparing for the next game:
“I feel ready and raring to go so I can’t wait to get started.
“I think in the last two games, performances have been better. If you look at the first half against Cambridge United, I think we hit the crossbar and the post three times and they score in the last minute so you need a bit of luck but the last two performances have been encouraging.
“Hopefully in these next games, we can surprise a few people and pick up some points against top opposition.”
