Doncaster Rovers are on the verge of signing Wolves striker Niall Ennis on a season-long loan, according to Football Insider.
Ennis is reportedly set to sign a new three-year deal at the Molineux before making the temporary switch to last season’s League One play-off semi-finalists.
Rovers suffered a setback when they lost leading striker John Marquis to Portsmouth earlier this week, and it appears Ennis his being recruited to help fill the void left by last season’s 25-goal man.
The 20-year-old was handed his Wolves debut in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury Town last season and he was also a regular feature for the Under-23 side, scoring nine goals in Premier League 2.
The Midlands side have now acted to secure his future at the club before he makes the loan switch, which is expected to be finalised imminently and then announced by the clubs.
The report also states that Ennis’ Wolves teammate Cameron John is set to join him in heading to the Keepmoat Stadium.
This has all the ingredients to be a good move for Ennis as he will be able to gain first-team experience at a decent level with Doncaster, while working under a top coach in Darren Moore.
The striker saw his previous loan spell at Shrewsbury cut short due to an injury, so he will be determined to make amends by showing his capability at senior level.
From Doncaster’s perspective, it will be a tough job to fill the void left by last season’s goalscoring duo of Marquis and Mallik Wilks, but they could do a lot worse than Ennis who had a good scoring record for the Under 23s last term.
I just hope that there is not too much pressure put on Ennis to deliver, as he is still young and is bound to occasionally make mistakes as he finds his feet in the senior game.
