Sky Bet League One club Doncaster Rovers have bolstered their defensive options ahead of this weekend’s game, with Colchester United at the Keepmoat Stadium, by securing the services of Everton defender Felipe Mattioni.
The Doncaster Free Press broke the news on Friday evening that the right-back has become the second player to join the South Yorkshire club this week and will be available for tomorrow’s game.
The 27-year-old is unlikely to be rushed into the first-team fitness wise and could feature with the club’s development squad first.
Boss Darren Ferguson is keen to see how the player can perform and has handed the player a deal until the end of the season as he looks to assess the player’s qualities.
Doncaster are struggling this season and are desperate for a win this weekend as they bid to climb the league table and pull clear of the relegation zone.
