Tyler Magloire has seen his 14-year association with Rovers come to an end after signing for Northampton Town.

The Cobblers have signed Magloire for an undisclosed fee, with the defender having agreed a three-year deal.

Magloire finished the season with the Cobblers, playing 10 games, before Rovers took up the one-year option in his contract.

Yet a month on, with Magloire having featured twice in pre-season, the two clubs have agreed a deal that has seen him move to Sixfields on a permanent deal.

Magloire played four times for Rovers in the first half of last season, and seven times in all after making his debut in March 2019.

He had loan spells with Rochdale, Hartlepool United, Motherwell and Northampton Town during his time at Ewood Park, having been with Rovers since the age of nine.

But he will now ply his trade with the League Two side who were delighted to secure his services.

Manager Jon Brady said: “Tyler is someone who enjoyed a good loan spell here last season, fitting in well both on and off the field.

“Tyler is a very mobile defender, he has a lot of pace and he is another player with a huge amount of potential.

“As well as playing for us in League Two last season, Tyler has also played in the Championship, SPL, National League and League One and he is a player we think we can work with to improve and develop.

“He did really well for us last season before his season was cut short with injury but he is fit now and has played some pre-season games with Blackburn.

“Tyler is another of our targets secured and we are delighted he is back, this time on a permanent basis.”
