Doncaster Rovers have signed young Chelsea midfielder Jordan Houghton on loan until January.
Houghton has trained with Rovers this week and could start at Accrington Stanley today as a replacement for Luke McCullough in the midfield holding role.
Rovers held back the announcement to keep today’s opening day opponents guessing.
Houghton, 20, spent time on loan at Gillingham and Plymouth Argyle last season.
He has been at Chelsea since the age of seven and has represented England at Under-20s level.
McCullough, who was set to play a key role in midfield, is out for the season with cruciate knee ligament damage.
