Rovers can announce that young duo Willem Tomlinson and Okera Simmonds have departed the club.

Both players have had their contract mutually terminated, to allow them to progress with their careers.

Tomlinson, who came through the youth ranks at the club, went on to appear on 10 occasions in all competitions for the first team.

The 20-year-old made his debut in the first team in the FA Cup at home to Manchester United back in early 2017, but hasn't made an outing under Tony Mowbray since the EFL Cup victory over Lincoln City at the start of this season.

Simmonds arrived from Liverpool in February 2017 and featured regularly in Damien Johnson's Under-23s squad last season.

However, game time for the winger has been limited this term in Premier League 2.

We wish both players the best for the future.
