The striker has ended his three-year stay at the Keepmoat to join League One rivals Porsmouth, with whom he has signed a three-year deal with an option for a further 12 months.

It is understood the fee is close to £2million.

Marquis netted 66 goals in 153 appearances for Rovers after joining from Millwall in the summer of 2016.

It was widely expected that the 27-year-old would depart Rovers this summer following strong interest in the last two transfer windows.
