Doncaster Rovers are close to signing versatile teenager Shane Blaney from League of Ireland side Finn Harps, according to reports.

The 18-year-old, who has captained Republic of Ireland Schoolboys, has reportedly spent time on trial with Rovers and Derby County.

Reports in Ireland suggest that Doncaster will have to pay a fee to land the youngster and a deal could be confirmed in the coming days.

Blaney can play at centre half, left back or in central midfield and made his senior Harps debut in September.
