Rovers are also set to conclude contract talks with the young players that have been offered fresh deals this summer.

Defender Ben Blythe and midfielder Lirak Hasani have been mulling over new terms while goalkeeper Ben Bottomley and midfielder Liam Ravenhill have been considering their first pro deals with the club.

It is expected Rovers will retain at least three of the youngsters, with a certain degree of confidence that all four will re-sign.
