THREE Blackburn Rovers youngsters have signed their first professional contracts with the club.

Joe Grayson, Stefan Mols and Charley Doyle have all agreed two year deals with Rovers that will run to the summer of 2019.

The trio follow Joe Rankin-Costello in agreeing terms with the 18-year-old having signed his deal back in January.

However, defender Tyler Magloire is yet to sign the deal he was offered at the end of the season.

Grayson, son of former Rovers defender Simon, is predominantly a midfielder, but did operate on the left side of a back three towards the end of the season for the Under-23s.  He made 18 appearances for Damien Johnson’s side last season, as well as eight for the Under-18s.

Central midfielder Mols scored once in 13 appearances for Johnson’s side last season, as well as finding the net twice in 23 appearances for the Under-18s.

Doyle, who can operate in central midfielder, or central defence, played three times for the Under-23s, and made 18 appearances for the Under-18s, scoring once.
