DRFC Chelsea Midfielder Close To Doncaster Return

DRFC Chelsea Midfielder Close To Doncaster Return

Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson says they are close to signing Chelsea midfielder Jordan Houghton on loan.

The midfielder is close to a return to full fitness after suffering a serious knee injury during his season-long loan at Doncaster last season.

Ferguson has made no secret of the fact that he wanted the 21-year-old to return to the Keepmoat once he was fit.

"It`s looking good. I think it`s just a case of paperwork to be done and that`s it, we`ll get him on loan," Ferguson told BBC Radio Sheffield.

"It`ll be until January but only because we need to see how he comes through the injury thing.

"He`ll be back with us after he`s played four or five games for the under-23s at Chelsea.

"I think the big thing for Jordan, Chelsea and ourselves is that he wants to come back so much.

"That`s a big tick in the box for us as a football club and Chelsea are delighted he`s coming back here.

"They need him to get games, competitive games, and we feel that he can add to the squad we`ve already got. So we`re delighted, we just need to get the paperwork done, that is the only thing missing."

Houghton played a key role for Doncaster in their promotion from League Two last season.

The Chelsea midfielder made 36 appearances for Doncaster, starting every league game until he suffered his injury against Luton Town in February.
