Ryan Nyambe admits Rovers feels like home after agreeing a new contract with the club.

The Namibian-born full back has been at Rovers since the age of 13 and has agreed a new two-year deal through to 2021. His previous contract, signed in 2017, was set to expire next summer, though did include the option of a further 12 months.

But having continued to be a regular in the side, the homegrown full back has been rewarded for his progress which sees him just three games short of reaching a century of appearances.

Nyambe has struggled with hamstring injuries during the past two years, but has still played 29 times in the Championship, and returned to the side for the Easter Monday win over Bolton.

After penning his latest extension, Nyambe said: “It feels great to get it signed.

“This club means a lot to me. I’ve been here since I was 13, so it feels like home to me really and I’m very pleased to be staying for the next few years.

“I think I’ve improved as a player and as a person during my time here.

“The club has really helped me a lot in both respects and I’m very grateful for that.”

Nyambe has played 97 times for Rovers in all competitions since his debut in the league cup against Shrewsbury in August 2015.

He has faced competition for his place from Elliott Bennett, but has also filled in at centre half this season when Rovers face a defensive injury crisis.
