The forward is expected to depart Rovers before the weekend with League Two outfit Cheltenham Town his likely destination.

Rovers boss Moore refused to go into details but admitted an offer had been made for May.

“There’s been a club in for Alfie May and we'll wait and see,” he said.

"He's reviewing his options and we’ll see what happens.

“At the moment, that's all I can say about it.”

Reports in Gloucestershire suggest Cheltenham have prepared a two-and-a-half year contract for May and hope to have him at the club in time to feature against Oldham Athletic on Saturday.

The 26-year-old was at the Keepmoat on Wednesday to watch Rovers' win over Oxford United but was not part of the squad.

On other potential departures from Rovers this month, Moore said the possibility could not be ruled out entirely.

“You can never say never,” Moore said. “We just wait and see.

“The January transfer window is open now and just as we are spotting targets for players, other teams will be looking at our players.

“It’s football and you accept it. We’ll wait and see and go from there.”

There is likely to be speculation regarding captain Ben Whiteman who was the subject of failed bids from Hull City in the summer and is understood to be on the radar of around a dozen clubs.

It is understood however that Rovers had received no firm interest in the midfielder prior to the window opening.
