PROMOTION chasing Doncaster are in talks with a proven Super League player about a move to the Keepmoat Stadium.

But any potential signing is dependent upon the help of the club’s fans.

Co-owner Carl Hall has admitted that if the Dons do not win promotion back to the second tier next year the club will have to consider leaving the Keepmoat.

Head coach Tony Miller has identified a player with Super League experience he thinks can play a pivotal part in the Dons’ promotion push.

In unprecedented fashion Miller has called an extraordinary general meeting to discuss the deal with supporters next week.

A club statement this week confirmed the Dons have an opportunity to sign a proven Super League player but cannot do it without the help of their supporters.

The identity of the player will be revealed at the meeting to be held in the Keepmoat Stadium’s Lakeside Suite on Tuesday night (7pm).

Miller said: “We all know that the forthcoming season is arguably the most important of the club’s history and we’ve made it no secret that we’re targeting a return to the Championship.

“If we’re to achieve our objectives, we need to sign the best players that become available to us.

“An opportunity has arisen for the club to sign a player of undoubted class - this is simply an opportunity that the club cannot afford to miss out on.

“Please encourage all your friends and family to attend the meeting and spread the word around town.”

Fans are also invited to take part in a question and answer session with the Dons’ Advisory Group at Tuesday’s meeting.
