Another Rover to come through the ranks at the club from the Academy to the first team.

After being named on the bench for the FA Cup quarter-final with Liverpool, and the final league game of the 2014-15 season against Ipswich Town, Ryan Nyambe finally made his senior bow in the Capital One Cup in August 2015, at the age of 17.

A committed and versatile defender, the Namibia-born youngster has the ability to play anywhere across the back four.

But it was at right back, and latterly right wing-back, where he made a name for himself during the 2016-17 season, making 28 appearances for the first team.

He's since gone from strength to strength and was a regular under Tony Mowbray as Rovers earned an instant return back to the Championship following promotion from League One in 2017-18.

Ryan's shown his versatility and quality, which has also seen him earn a call up for his country, featuring for the Brave Warriors in the African Cup of Nations in the summer of 2019.
