DRFC - Wellens sad to leave Rovers

Richie Wellens has revealed his sadness in leaving Doncaster Rovers after signing for Leicester City in a deal worth up to £1.2 million.

Speaking on Radio Sheffield Wellens said "In terms of Doncaster, I am going to miss playing for them. The way that Sean O`Driscoll playing makes us a good side and I loved the way we played football"

Wellens joined Rovers in the summer of 2007 from Oldham Athletic on a free transfer and was included in the League One team of the year in his first season at the club, that first season culminated in the side winning promotion to the Championship for the first time in fifty years.

On a personal level Wellens continued on Radio Sheffield by saying "My time at Doncaster has probably been the best two years of his career".

The 29 year old became a huge fans favourite and scored nine goals during his two years at the club, the highlight was probably his 30 yard effort against Coventry City last season.

Wellens says the major factor in his decision to join Leicester was to set him and his family up financially has he heads towards the end of his career and the opportunity to play for a big club in front of big crowds.
