DRFC Ferguson Looking To Get Deal Done With Chelsea

DRFC Ferguson Looking To Get Deal Done With Chelsea

Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson is looking to get a deal done with Chelsea that will see the return of Jordan Houghton to the Keepmoat Stadium.

Houghton enjoyed a successful spell at the club last season before suffering a serious knee injury in the game against Luton Town in February.

The midfielder is ahead of schedule in his return to fitness and with the 21-year-old only expected to now miss the first month of the season, Ferguson is looking to get a deal done soon.

"Jordan is not going to be fully fit to play in our games until the middle of September," Ferguson told The Sheffield Star.

"We`re negotiating with Chelsea over what we can do with him.

"Jordan would be a signing that we`d look to get done pretty soon, then getting one or two others in after that."

Houghton made 36 appearances for Doncaster last season, playing a pivotal part in the clubs promotion from League Two.
