Defender Younger and midfielder Clayton both signed 18-month deals on arriving at the club in the last week.

And McSheffrey has confirmed their stays could be extended by a further 12 months if they make a specific number of appearances for Rovers during the initial terms of their deals.

Speaking about Clayton’s arrival, he said: “If he hits targets in terms of games then his contract rolls on for an extra year, and that is the same as Ollie Younger.
