Doncaster Rovers have secured the capture of West Brom forward Rayhaan Tulloch on a season-long loan deal.
The 19-year-old is highly-rated at The Hawthorns, but his unlikely to feature in the Premier League and needs senior football to aid his development. As a former West Brom manager, Darren Moore is to be trusted with the striker’s development, in much the same way Michael Appleton is to be trusted with Calum Morton at Lincoln City.
It has been widely reported that Doncaster have seen off competition from Fleetwood Town and Swindon Town to sign the exciting striker, who has bagged regularly for West Brom’s Under 23 side in recent seasons. He has also made several appearances for the Baggies in the FA Cup, with his first involvement in senior football, coming at the tender age of 16.
Tulloch is the second young loan signing to arrive at Doncaster in a week, with Arsenal forward Tyreece John-Jules also penning a one-year loan deal at the Keepmoat. John-Jules came off the bench for Arsenal in the Community Shield victory against Liverpool and has previously spent time on loan in League One with Lincoln City, scoring once in seven matches.
Doncaster, who have lost one and drawn one of their opening fixtures, kick-off their League One campaign tomorrow against MK Dons, with both players expected to feature. The arrival of Tulloch, in particular, has excited fans this morning, who have seen their goalscoring fears allayed in two swift captures.
