Rovers have announced the permanent signing of attacker Ben Brereton from Nottingham Forest.

The 19-year-old has seen his permanent move confirmed having spent the early months of the season on loan from the City Ground.

Brereton, who has played 17 times for the club, arrives on a three-and-a-half year deal, with the fee undisclosed.

That could reach £7m depending upon clauses in the deal being triggered, with Rovers having already paid a loan fee to bring him in before January.

The striker is yet to score for the club, but boss Tony Mowbray remains confident that the England youth international will prove to be an excellent signing for the club.

Brereton came through the ranks at Forest, playing 57 times and scoring nine goals. 

He is also an England youth international up to Under-20s level.
