Doncaster Rovers are closing in on the signing of Shrewsbury Town forward Fejiri Okenabirhie, according to the Yorkshire Post.
Darren Moore’s side have been in the market since the summer to add more firepower to their side after the departures of leading marksmen John Marquis and Mallik Wilks and look set to add to their side before Friday’s deadline.
Doncaster are reportedly on the verge of signing Shrewsbury Town forward Fejiri Okenabirhie, as reported by Leon Wobschall of the Yorkshire Post.
The striker has been a sporadic feature of Shrewsbury’s side this season, with a mixture of starts and substitute appearances coming for Salop.
It’s not been the most prolific campaign for him, scoring just two goals in a total of 17 league appearances, however, he did hit double figures last season for them after playing a lot more regularly.
Doncaster are by no means free-scoring this season but they are also in a decent supply of goals, mixed with the joint-second best defence too, they’re only four points off the play-offs this season and could build a run together in the coming months.
The deal will be expected to be completed before tomorrow’s deadline and see Moore add some much-needed attacking impetus.
This would be a solid signing for Darren Moore’s side to add some firepower to their side, albeit with a player that is currently out of form this season.
Okenabirhie hasn’t hit the heights of last season just yet but a change of scenery could be just what he needs to get back on track and get more regular playing time.
It wouldn’t break the bank for Doncaster to bring him in, as he isn’t a regular starter and is playing for a side currently lower down the table.
Moore has needed to replace the goals that fired Doncaster into the play-offs last season and he might be finally bringing in a solid attacker to do that.
