Millwall striker Marquis joins Doncaster Rovers

FORMER Millwall striker John Marquis has joined Doncaster Rovers on a two-year deal following his release from the club at the end of the season. 

The 24-year-old endured a frustrating time at Millwall, making just 65 appearances over a period of seven seasons.

After a plethora of loan spells including Gillingham and Northampton Town, manager Neil Harris chose to release the striker at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.

However, Rovers boss Darren Ferguson has opted to sign the 24 year-old on a permanent basis for the forthcoming season.

Ferguson told Doncaster's official website: "John has been on our radar for quite a while now and we're glad to get this signing over the line – the squad is now really starting to take shape.

"He’s a tireless worker who leads the line well and doesn’t give defenders a moments rest. He’s a good age and we’re hoping that his move here can provide him with a new challenge.

"John’s experience of success at this level with Northampton could prove vital and we’re delighted to have him on board."
