Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of forward Max Woltman on a season-long loan from Premier League side Liverpool.
Gary McSheffrey has swooped to strengthen his attacking options on deadline day with Woltman arriving for his first taste of the EFL.
The 19-year-old has come through the ranks at Anfield and has an impressive scoring record at youth level.
He made his first team debut for the reds as a late substitute against AC Milan in the Champions League last season, before starting in the 4-1 win over Shrewsbury Town in the Emirates FA Cup third round in January.
After putting pen to paper, Woltman said: “I’m very excited and I can’t wait to meet the players and see the fans.
“It’s a club with big aspirations and I’m really excited to be a part of it.
“It’s one thing doing it in youth football but taking it into men’s football is the bigger picture and that’s where I want to be.
“The club have got big aspirations to go for promotion and that’s just what I want. I want to see if I can help the club and take them where they want to be.”
Manager Gary McSheffrey said: “He’s coming in from Liverpool and he’s a well-educated footballer.
“He ticks some boxes for us in that he can play across the front line and I think with the injuries we’ve had in recent weeks, it bulks us up in those areas.
“We’re really happy to get him on board.”
