Rovers sign Bristol City winger Ephraim Yeboah on loan

11 June 2024

We are delighted to confirm the signing of winger Ephraim Yeboah on a season-long loan from Bristol City.

The 17-year-old has featured on ten occasions for the Sky Bet Championship side and arrives at the Eco-Power Stadium seeking his first sustained run in senior EFL football.

Italy-born Yeboah spent the latter part of last season on loan at Bath City, who reached the play-offs in National League South.

“I’m really excited to get the move over the line and get a loan move for the whole season,” he said. “I’m just excited to get going.

“This is a big club that pushed hard for the play-offs last season and were unfortunate not to get to the final. I’m here for this season and hopefully we can make it to League One.

“The manager has talked to me about the targets and expectations for the season and the fanbase. It’s all been positive things.”

Rovers manager Grant McCann said: “We wanted to bring more competition in the wide areas and we had options on the list but we always kept coming back to Ephraim’s name.

“He’s a boy that we’ve watched religiously for a while. We just like everything about him - he’s very quick, very direct, he’ll get fans off their seats. He can play off the left or the right, he can play as a nine or a ten so he’s really versatile in how he plays. He’s a powerful boy.

“I think he’s a really good signing for us and he’s one we’re really excited about.”

Yeboah is Rovers’ fifth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Joe Sbarra, Jordan Gibson, Harry Clifton and Tom Nixon.
