Rovers midfielder Stefan Mols has played his second game as a trialist for Burnley this afternoon.

Mols returned to Rovers in January from a scheduled season-long loan spell at Spanish four tier side FC Intercity where he struggled for game-time, with difficulties also surrounding the training arrangements during his time away from Ewood.

The 22-year-old has been a regular for Rovers Under-23s, playing 61 times in Premier League 2, including three earlier this season. However, he hasn’t featured since returning from his loan spell, with Rovers keen to look at some of their younger talent coming through the ranks.

That has seen Mols allowed to join Burnley on trial, playing twice for their Under-23s side who operate in the second tier of Premier League 2.

The Spaniard played 90 minutes in a 3-1 win over West Brom today, having also played the full game against Middlesbrough last month that the young Clarets won 3-1.

Mols is out of contract at Rovers in the summer and expected to become a free agent, with no timeframe disclosed on how long he will spend with Burnley.

Mols started three of Rovers’ opening four matches of their Premier League 2 this season before a deadline day switch in October.

His sole appearance for the Rovers first-team came in the Checkatrade Trophy against Bury in October 2016, with injury seeing him miss much of the 2017/18 season.

He has played much of his football for Rovers in the attacking midfield positions, but his all-action style has seen him fill in at right back at times where he has been used for the Clarets youngsters.

Joel Mumbongo scored twice, with Lewis Richardson opening the scoring, as Burnley beat West Brom 3-1 this afternoon, the victory moving them to seventh in the standings.
