Rovers are set to complete the signings of two teenage Portuguese stars ... and both could figure in tonight’s pre-season friendly at Rochdale.
Edon Junior (Edinho) and Paulo Jorge, who both impressed in Rovers’ warm-up matches at the weekend, will team up with compatriots Nuno Gomes and Fabio Nunes.
Striker Edinho, 18, joins from Portuguese club S.C Olhanense, while midfielder Jorge, also 19, spent last season in Porto’s under 19s side after coming up through the ranks with the Portuguese giants.
“Both players have great ability and potential and we are delighted to add them to our squad,” said Rovers’ boss Steve Kean, who is likely to call upon the services of most of his senior players at Spotland this evening (kick-off 7.30pm).
• Rovers fans are reminded that tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for juniors aged 16 and under can be bought on the door.
