Rovers have added another promising youngster to their ranks with the capture of Aaron Tumwa.

The 19-year-old defender joins on a free transfer following his release from Watford at the end of last season.

Tumwa has been with Rovers for the majority of the summer, featuring as a trialist with Eric Kinder's Under-21 side in their pre-season friendlies and in last Monday's league opener at West Bromwich Albion, playing at both left back and in the centre defence.

The defender, who will be part of the development squad, has signed a one-year contract and is expected to be named in the Under-21 line-up when they face Reading at Ewood Park in the Barclays Premier Under-21 League match this Monday night, kick-off 7.00pm.
