DRFC Saunders on Birchall, Robert and Ilunga

DRFC Saunders on Birchall, Robert and Ilunga

Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders commented on the possibility of players coming into the Keepmoat in his post-match interview with Radio Sheffield.

Rovers have been linked with Chris Birchall from LA Galaxy this week but when asked whether he was after the midfielder, Saunders said he had no interest in Trinidad and Tobago international.

Another name that has been mentioned is young French midfielder Fabien Robert from Lorient.

Saunders commented, "That name has been thrown at me but nothing has happened at the moment."

The 22 year old is a French under 20 international and he has come through the ranks at Lorient.

Saunders was also asked if he was hoping to bring back Herita Ilunga from West Ham.

The left back spent three months on loan at the Keepmoat, making 15 appearances before returning to Upton Park after the game with Barnsley on Monday. Speaking about Ilunga, Saunders said, "There is a chance, we are trying to agree something because we haven`t got a left back."

Only Mamadou Bagayoko of the three players signed last week, made their debut in the defeat to Notts County. The striker played almost an hour before being replaced by the returning John Oster.

Habib Bamogo played no part due to a slight hamstring strain and Rovers are still waiting for international clearance for Damien Plessis.

Rovers seem to be bringing in players at the moment just for the sake of it. Diatta is yet to play and these lads from Greece are all not match fit. With the position Rovers are in they need players who are ready to go straight in. Haven't got time to get them match fit over five or six games. This lad Robert has only played once this season back in August.

Agree. Birchall would have been the best move as he's just finished his season in America.
