WATCH | McCann discusses the signing of Deji Sotona

14 July 2023

Deji Sotona caught the eye as a trialist during Rovers’ pre-season friendly win at Boston United - just as manager Grant McCann knew he would.

Forward Sotona was a big threat for Rovers at the Jakemans Community Stadium, using his pace to attack from wide areas.

The 20-year-old impressed sufficiently during his trial period to earn a two-year contract and become the ninth signing of the summer.

And McCann believes Rovers have secured a forward player fit and ready to fire for the club.

“We knew that was going to happen at Boston because we’d seen enough of him in training,” he said.

“We revisited the 1km time trial when he joined us up in Scotland and he’s right up there at the top of that so we know he’s durable and robust.

“Now it’s about getting him into the positions where he can be a real threat for us.”
