Thimothee Lo-Tutala is ready to show the full extent of his goalkeeping arsenal after joining on loan for the remainder of the season.
The 20-year-old will spend the rest of the 23/24 campaign at the Eco-Power Stadium after the switch from Hull City.
Top of the France-born goalkeeper’s agenda is building on his experience helping Stevenage to promotion from Sky Bet League Two last term.
“Last year was my first loan in professional football and I was so grateful for that experience,” he said. “To get that experience of being promoted is a blessing.
“I loved every minute of it in League Two. It’s different from what I’m used to but I just saw it as opening the tools in my toolbox and learning a side of the game that I haven’t been exposed to.
“I just want to play every game I can, grow and build my career.”
Lo-Tutala believes the style of football implemented by Grant McCann at Rovers will suit his strengths.
“I’d describe myself as an all-round goalkeeper, an aggressive one,” he said. “A goalkeeper that is vocal and wants to help the team as much as possible so I try to lead with my voice.
“I’m a shot-stopper and I like to set up counterattacks as much as possible. With the ball at my feet is one of my strengths.
“The way we play just suits me a tee.
“I’m hopeful that I can help the team in any way that I can, get us up the table as much as possible, try to motivate the boys and be there.
“I thank the gaffer for that trust and I’m just want to keep as many clean sheets as possible and just enjoy football really.”
