Doncaster Rovers youngster Lirak Hasani has joined Gateshead on loan for the rest of the season.

The 18-year-old midfielder is eying his first taste of regular senior football during what is his first loan move to the National League North.

Cantley-born Hasani has been one of the most highly rated youth products at Rovers in recent years.

He made his senior debut as a 16-year-old during the 2018/19 season and has made five appearances in total, including two off the bench in League One this season.

Hasani struggled with injury problems last season which hampered his progress but he has been consistently around the first team this term, having been named in 13 matchday squads.

The decision to disband Rovers’ U23s section due to financial pressures arising from the Covid-19 pandemic means players in Hasani’s age bracket have not played regular football this season.

It is understood Rovers have inserted a recall option into Hasani’s loan which can be activated after the initial 28 days.
