Doncaster have confirmed the signing of Algerian defender Rachid Bouhenna, subject to international clearance.

The 20-year-old, who can play anywhere across the back four, has put pen to paper on a 12-month contract.

Bouhenna, who played for French Ligue 2 side Sedan last season, had featured in all Rovers' pre-season games.

He told Rovers Player: "I'm really happy about signing for a club like Doncaster.

"I was scouted a couple of times by Rovers in France and I impressed the scouts and then the staff when I came over on trial.

"I'm proud to come over to England, the French people admire the English leagues and Rovers have been great - the players and staff have welcomed me and made me feel great by talking all the time."
