WATCH | Grant McCann discusses the return of Tom Nixon

11 June 2024

Grant McCann says all parties are relishing the battle for the right back slot at Rovers after Tom Nixon secured his return to the club.

Nixon has signed a three-year deal with Rovers after a deal was agreed with Hull City for an undisclosed fee for the right back.

And McCann says the 21-year-old is primed to fight with Jamie Sterry to secure a starting berth in the team.

"I spoke to Tom at the end of the season and he was really keen to come back," McCann said. "It's not been easy but we've got there in the end.

"I thank Hull for letting us get this one done. I thought he was outstanding in the first half of the season.

"Tom knows he is here to fight for that place and Jamie Sterry will know he's in for a fight too."
