Steve Waggott felt some transfer targets would have been unachievable in this window but has been delighted with the business already done, with the potential of more to come.

The Rovers chief executive feels the club’s league position has been key to securing the signatures of Dilan Markanday on a permanent deal from Tottenham Hotspur as well as agreeing a loan to buy deal with Hertha Berlin right back Deyovaisio Zeefuik.

James Brown has also arrived on a free transfer after leaving Drogheda United leaving the current incomings at three, with the suggestion of more to come.

Waggott again stressed the players would have to be the right fit for Tony Mowbray’s young squad but feels Rovers are an attractive proposition for prospective signings.

“We’re delighted with the business we’ve done, we thought one or two might be unachievable, but we’ve got them, again by being near the top of the table makes you more of an attractive proposition,” he told the BBC.

“That’s made it easier to attract players.

“We’ve got a list of players who we’re looking at.

“We have to be careful because the cohesion of the squad is so good at present and Tony is very particular and has always said if he’s going for ability or attitude he’ll always take attitude.

“That’s the crux to it all.

“We think the players we’ve brought in have all got great attributes as footballers and human beings.

“We’re hoping they can integrate into the squad and if we can push the button on one or two more they’re going to have to be the right character as well.”

Markanday made his debut off the bench in the second half of the defeat at Hull City where Brown was an unused substitute.

Zeefuik travelled with the squad but was never in contention to make the bench, but could do so for Monday’s visit of Middlesbrough.
