New Rovers recruit Kasey Palmer says he's been impressed by what he's seen from the squad and the club this week after arriving on a season-long loan from Premier League side Chelsea.
A youngster with plenty of Championship experience, Palmer played his part in Huddersfield Town's promotion to the Premier League back in the 2016-17 campaign.
He enjoyed a stint with Derby County in the second part of last season, and following his first training session with the rest of the squad yesterday, firmly believes that 2018-19 can be another successful one for Rovers under Tony Mowbray.
“After the last few seasons I want to try and be successful in the league again," Palmer told iFollow Rovers. "I have huge faith in the team, our style of play, the manager and the staff. I’m confident we can surprise a few in the Championship this season.
“I want to score as many as I can and help with assists to win matches for us. We can achieve what we want to achieve this season. It’s a big season for me.
“Last season was quite disrupted by injuries but I want to play as much as possible and ensure we’re successful this season.
“It’s a club that should be in the Premier League when you see the facilities and the stadium we have here. The club have had some disappointing seasons but I believe we’re on the right track again now and I really believe that we’ll get back to the Premier League."
After getting the deal done, Palmer's only aim now is to get up to speed and get in the team for Rovers' return to the second tier, which starts in earnest at Ipswich Town on Saturday.
“Once you sign you just want to play," the 21-year-old added. "I’m raring to go and show everyone what I can do, starting at Ipswich and then at Ewood Park when we take on Millwall."
