Rovers have made it 12 summer signings with the completion of deals for Diogo Rosado and Nuno Henrique.

On a busy week of transfers for Rovers as the deadline draws to a close, Steve Kean has added the Portuguese duo to make it twelve signings over the summer period.

22 year-old Diogo Rosado has finally completed his move to Rovers, the attacking midfielder joins from Sporting Lisbon.

Whilst the club have increased their defensive options with the addition of central defender Nuno Henrique, he arrives from Academica De Coimbra.

A product of the famed Sporting Lisbon Academy, Dio first enjoyed senior football with Real Massama in 2009 when he joined them on loan. Similar spells  with Penafiel and Feirense followed to add to his experience.

Diogo has also played on the international stage having featured regularly for Portugal at all levels through to the under 21s.

Defender Nuno Henrique started out at AD Fafe spending three years with 
his hometown club where he made 45 appearances, scoring 4 goals. He spent a season at Desportivo Aves before securing a transfer to Feirense.

A season with the Santa Maria da Feira side lead to a move to Sporting Braga where he linked up with fellow Rover Nuno Gomes, although Henrique didn't feature as he was loaned back to Feirense.

After a brief spell with Academica De Coimbra, Henrique joined Rovers to become their twelfth signing of the summer.

Both players have signed three year deals, the club now awaits the usual international clearance.
