Doncaster Rovers have signed Remi Matthews on loan from Norwich City until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper came through the Canaries academy but is yet to make a senior appearance for them. And in order to continue his development, he has gone out on loan to Doncaster.

Matthews has been out on loan before in two spells at Burton Albion. In both spells he was mostly used as a reserve goalkeeper with him not making a single appearance in his first spell and only making six in his most recent loan which took place this season. He will hope to make more in this spell with Doncaster.

The South Yorkshire club need any boost they can get. Recent poor form has seen them drop into the relegation zone and will need to play at their best in the coming games to make sure they don’t drop into League 2.

Following the signing, Matthews told the club website: “It’s a massive game for the club and then we’re straight at it again on Monday. They’re two huge games where we need six points.”

“I knew straight away I wanted to come here. I wanted to play for Darren Ferguson, he’s a big name in football with a good reputation.”

“I can see straight away that he has faith in me, and that’s a great opportunity for me on the field as well as to work along side him.”
