The sky's the limit for Harry

Tony Mowbray is delighted to finally land his man after Harry Chapman arrived on a permanent deal

28 January 2019

Tony Mowbray is pleased that Harry Chapman is here to stay long-term after finally landing the winger on a permanent deal from Middlesbrough.

Chapman, who appeared 16 times during Rovers' successful League One campaign last season, is back for good after the 21-year-old put pen-to-paper on a two-and-a-half year contract.
 
And the news has delighted Mowbray, who has managed to get his hands on Chapman following a long pursuit for his signature. 
 
“Harry’s got attributes and assets that our team will utilise moving forward," the boss revealed to iFollow Rovers after clinching his first signing of the January transfer window.
 
“He has blistering speed on the transition, can run past a man one on one and create opportunities for us.
 
“He’s still only young, he’s only 21, but he hasn’t played as much football as he’d have liked in his career.
 
“I like what he brings, that’s why he’s here. I work with him every day and I know that youthfulness.
 
“The key is to use his attributes at the right moments.
 
“He needs to do a lot of work on his body, so I don’t think we’ll see him for a while. I don’t think he’s even fit enough to go out on loan. We will be getting him ready for the intensity to play for us.
 
“I’m delighted he’s here and here for the long-term. Let’s not rush him, so when he is right he can contribute at his maximum."
