Rovers will confirm a loan signing on Friday with the new acquisition having been present at the Cantley Park training ground on Thursday.

Paperwork for the deal has been completed with an announcement to follow on Friday, ahead of Moore’s first meeting with the media.

The new signing will be the fourth of the summer for Rovers, following Reece James, Brad Halliday and Madger Gomes.

Moore met with the Rovers squad for the first time on Thursday morning before introducing himself to club staff at the stadium.

He was also busy reviewing a raft of potential signings lined up by the club before his appointment.

The club was well under way with recruitment when Grant McCann left to take charge of Hull City.

And deals that had been agreed but not ratified were kept alive where possible in order to give the new manager the opportunity to make additions quickly after his appointment as McCann’s successor.

It is understood that a loan deal for Rangers youngster Glenn Middleton remains a possibility despite reports in Scotland suggesting the Glasgow giants had pulled the plug.

It had been reported that Rangers were looking to place the winger elsewhere. However Rovers continue to have the option for the 19-year-old.
