The 21-year-old joined on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City to become Rovers' fifth signing of the summer.

The towering defender joined City's youth system at the age of five and went on to make his debut for the club's Under-18s at the age of just 14.

He signed his first pro deal upon turning 17 and was appointed captain of their Under-18s as a first year scholar.

A strong and confident centre-back, who possesses good positional awareness and leadership skills, Adarabioyo made his City first team debut in an FA Cup tie against Chelsea in February 2016.

Promoted to City's senior squad under manager Pep Guardiola, Adarabioyo has made a further seven first team appearances for the club, including four in the Champions League, and signed a new long-term contract in June 2017.

He spent last season on loan in the Championship with West Bromwich Albion, making 36 appearances in all competitions and helping the Baggies secure a place in the play-offs.
