Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Lee Tomlin on a one-year deal.
The 33-year-old joins the club having been a regular in the starting XI throughout pre-season.
Having spent the majority of his career in the Sky Bet Championship, Tomlin’s CV lists the likes of Peterborough United, Middlesborough, Bristol City and Cardiff City.
He has played more than 550 career games to date, scoring 116 goals as well as costing almost £9million in transfer fees over that period.
Tomlin’s addition provides Gary McSheffrey with even more creative spark with a little over a week to go until the Sky Bet League Two season gets underway.
After putting pen to paper, Tomlin said: “I’m delighted. Since I’ve been in the building it’s been really good and I’ve enjoyed myself.
“You’re always nervous entering a new dressing room but knowing a couple of the lads made it easier. I’ve tried to get around the younger lads and encourage them on the pitch.
“As an experienced player I want to have an impact. I’ve loved being here and the manager could see that from the way I trained and played.
On his latest addition, manager Gary McSheffrey said: “We’re really pleased. We know of Lee’s qualities and he’s had a fantastic career so far.
“He’s back enjoying his football again and we’ve helped put a smile on his face. He’s 33 and still got a lot of good years left in him.
“With more than 550 games under his belt he will be a great addition to what we already have, so we’re happy to get him on board.”
