Stefan Mols has returned to his native Spain having joined CF Intercity on a season-long loan.

Mols has been with Rovers for 12 years and made his senior debut in a Checkatrade Trophy fixture with Bury in the 2017/18 season. However, that remains his sole appearance for the senior side and will now look to progress his career having joined the Tercera Division club until June 2021.

The 21-year-old has been a regular for Rovers Under-23s, making 60 Premier League 2 appearances in all, his development disrupted by a fractured tibia which ruled him out for six months shortly after his first-team bow.

Mols has featured in all three Under-23s matches this season, and his versatility has seen him used in a number of positions across the midfield for the Under-23s side. He wasn’t part of the Rovers XI which hosted Huddersfield B in a behind closed doors match on Monday afternoon as the details of his move were being finalised.

Born in Andalusia, Mols arrived at Rovers at the age of nine and signed his first professional contract in 2017.  He signed an extension in March 2019 with his current deal at the club set to expire next summer, upon his return from what is the first loan spell of his career.

The new Tercera Division season kicks off on October 18, with CF Intercity facing Hercules B. The club, based in Valencia, were formed in 2017 and have already won two promotions in their bid to rise up the Spanish football pyramid.
