Midfielder pens pro deal

27 January 2017

Promising young midfielder Joe Rankin-Costello has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The hot prospect has put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half-year deal until the summer of 2019.

After joining from Manchester United midway through the 2014-15 campaign, Joe had an outstanding first full season at the Academy, making close on 40 appearances at Under-18 and Under-21 level, as well as playing a pivotal role as Rovers reached the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup.

The 17-year-old has continued that progress this season, with 20 appearances for Damien Johnson's development squad, including one outing in the Checkatrade Trophy.
