Rovers are pleased to confirm the loan signing of central defender Ben Nelson on loan from Premier League side Leicester City until the end of the 2022/23 season.
The 18-year-old spent the first half of the season with fellow Sky Bet League Two side Rochdale, where he made 12 appearances.
His final game for Dale was against Rovers on December 29, where Tom Anderson’s winner secured all three points at the Eco-Power Stadium.
Nelson becomes Rovers second signing of the January transfer window after the addition of Todd Miller from Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday.
He said:“I really like the style of play and the way that Doncaster likes to play suits me a lot in terms of my capabilities as a centre back.
“Switching things up is a good thing. I feel like this one suits me a lot more.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for me and it’s the next step in my development so I’m really happy."
Head coach Danny Schofield said: “We watched him for a while, both at U21 and during his spell with Rochdale and we feel he can come in and make a real impact for us.
“He’s very young but he has lots of potential and we feel his attributes will benefit the way we want to play football."
