Doncaster Rovers are reportedly set to complete the loan signings of West Ham duo Freddie Piquionne and Herita Ilunga.

According to The Mirror, new Rovers boss Dean Saunders is keen to add the Hammers pair to his ranks as the Welshman continues his Keepmoat Stadium revolution.

Donny have picked up seven points in three games since Saunders left Wrexham so succeed Sean O'Driscoll; climbing out of the Npower Championship relegation zone in the process.

Piquionne and Ilunga, meanwhile, are likely to be allowed to temporarily leave Upton Park by Sam Allardyce after falling down the pecking order of the Hammers boss.


Carlton Cole, John Carew and Sam Baldock have all been favoured ahead of Piquionne in recent weeks, while Kevin Nolan and Henri Lansbury have also played off a loan striker.

The arrival of George McCartney on loan from Sunderland has seen Ilunga drop out of the side, and the latter is expected to talk to Saunders on Tuesday.
