Doncaster Rovers will give manager Paul Dickov the green light to sign new players, reports The Star

Dickov had expected to confirm signings and renew contracts on Friday when John Ryan and Louis Tomlinson’s takeover of the club was expected to be completed.

Paul Dickov will discover on Tuesday the transfer budget he will be given.

But the takeover collapsed and Dickov’s plans were shelved for the time being.

Dickov will meet with the current owners Terry Bramall and Dick Watson on Tuesday to discover the transfer budget for this season.

Chief executive Gavin Baldwin told The Star: 

“Obviously this is a position no-one expected to be in at this stage of the season.

“A meeting with Paul and the owners is due to take place on Tuesday 22 July and at that meeting budgets for the forthcoming season will be discussed and Paul will be given the go-ahead to sign players.

“The owners have been quick to state that they wish to support Paul in order to achieve a return to the Championship.”

Rovers have yet to make a signing so far this summer but Bramall has reassured fans that the club will have a good budget to compete for promotion from League One.

The Star believe had Ryan and Tomlinson taken over the club, that budget would be “significantly greater” than the kitty being handed out by Bramall.

Former Huddersfield Town defender Peter Clarke and former Derby County midfielder James Bailey had been lined up to sign contracts once the takeover was complete while James Coppinger had agreed to a contract extension.
