DRFC Whiteman - Easy Decision To Come Back

DRFC Whiteman - Easy Decision To Come Back

Ben Whiteman says it was an easy decision to come back to Doncaster Rovers on a permanent deal after making the move across South Yorkshire from Sheffield United.

The 21-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a three-and-a-half year deal after spending the first half of the season on loan at the Keepmoat.

Sheffield United recalled Whiteman last week after the two clubs had agreed to extend his loan until the end of the season. The midfielder was recalled after an injury crisis in midfield at Bramall Lane but two new signings this week from Chris Wilder allowed a deal to be resurrected with Doncaster moving to make the deal a permanent one and Whiteman cannot wait to get going again.

"I`m made up to have signed for this club permanently, we`ve managed to get it all sorted fairly quickly and my aim was always to get back here," Whiteman told the Doncaster Rovers official website.

'I enjoyed my loan spell and that`s what made me want to come back, it was an easy decision to come back here once the offer went in.

"The aim was to get it done and dusted so that I could be a part of the game on Saturday, we`ve managed to do that and now I`m buzzing to get going again."

Whiteman made 30 appearances for Doncaster in the first half of the season and he is the joint leading goalscorer in all competitions with seven goals.

He will go straight back into the squad for the clash with Plymouth Argyle this weekend.
