“Before I spoke to him I was excited over the prospect of playing here but when I sat down and spoke with him it ticked another box for me.”

Houghton was a key figure in Doncaster’s promotion from League Two in 2017 and made another 40 appearances on loan for Rovers last term.

Rovers agreed a deal with Chelsea to sign Houghton permanently in January but the player opted to keep his options open.

Dons boss Paul Tisdale said: “Jordan is a young and talented player and he has had a good experience already.

“We hope that he will join us and be a part of the Club’s development and progress over the next two or three years. He’s certainly got the potential to go with us on our journey.”
