Doncaster have snapped up defender George Friend on a two-year contract following his departure from Wolves.
The full-back, 22, who can also play in midfield, was informed at the end of the season that he was surplus to requirements at Molineux.
Friend joined Wolves from Exeter for £350,000 in 2008 but managed only eight first-team appearances and had loan spells with Millwall, Southend and Scunthorpe as well as a stint back at St James Park.
However, he did play in Wanderers' controversial trip to Manchester United last season, when manager Mick McCarthy made 10 changes to his starting line-up.
Friend refused to rule out a permanent return to Exeter this summer but Doncaster have now won the chase for his signature.
