"We're looking good on that front.

"Until it's signed, it's not signed but they've both agreed which is good.

"Danny is away at the moment on his stag do because he gets married soon.

"We're hoping he's going to be in later this week to get the paperwork signed."

Andrew is the final out-of-contract player to finalise his future with Andy Butler having left to join Scunthorpe United.

And McCann has confirmed negotiations with skipper Tommy Rowe have ended.

The Rovers boss says it is 'not feasible' to meet Rowe's wage demands and he will instead spread the money around improving the squad.

"We feel we can get a player that can come in there that's a younger version of Tommy and can be at least as effective," McCann said. That is where we're looking at.

"It's nothing against Tommy, we love him, we think he's a really good player.

"In terms of that we just need to make sure we balance it around the group a bit more."
