DRFC O'Driscoll on loan links

Doncaster Rovers have been linked with a number of players this week and Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll admitted he might be ready to move into the loan transfer market.

Rovers have been linked this week with strikers, Danny Ward from Bolton, Simon Cox from West Brom and David Healy from Sunderland.

O`Driscoll stated last week that the club couldn`t afford to bring in any new players, even on loan but with young loan player Ryan Mason from Spurs struggling with a back injury he might be about to bring one in.

Mason has returned to his parent side Spurs so that their medical staff can examine the extent of the injury.

If the news is bad then that may prompt O`Driscoll to bring in another player, speaking in the Doncaster Free Press, O`Driscoll said, 'If he is unable to return we may try to bring someone else in on loan.

'We are always looking but we don't have anyone in particular in mind.'

O`Driscoll admitted his interest in Ward, who enjoyed a very successful spell on loan at League One side Swindon Town last season, helping them to the play off final, 'He is one who we inquired about a while ago but he is attracting attention from a lot of clubs," he continued.

The Rovers boss also commented on the link with Northern Ireland international David Healy on the official site, when he said, "An agent as asked the question, would we be interested in taking David Healy? However, that is as far as it`s gone.
"At the moment it`s just speculation I suppose, but he is someone who would interest me."

Rovers will still be without striker James Hayter this weekend but could welcome back Steve Brooker as he continues his comeback from his long-term injury.

The international break will have also done leading marksman Billy Sharp the world of good, he`s struggled with a few different niggles since the start of the season and was a doubt before the last game against Hull City after picking up a knock in training.

It looks like if Moran leaves then Rovers can bring someone else in, I can't imagine he's on anything near as much as David Healy a week.

I wouldn't mind seeing any of the three players we have been linked with coming to the Keepmoat. I know Rovers have spent a lot of money on Sharp and he should be getting the majority of the goals but it would take some of the weight off his shoulders if he had a decent striker alongside him.
