Doncaster Rovers manager Dean Saunders aims to follow up the capture of Paul Quinn by signing another defender and a striker.

Former Cardiff City defender Quinn agreed a one-year contract with Rovers on Thursday and he is set to be joined by a couple more fresh faces in the coming days.

Saunders has spoken to the Doncaster board and is optimistic that further arrivals at the Keepmoat Stadium are imminent.

"I'm working really hard to try and finalise the deals for a striker and a defender," Saunders told the club's official website.

"Hopefully we can get the deals completed in the next few days."

Leeds United striker Billy Paynter has been given permission to speak to Doncaster and reports suggest he will agree to join the League One club.
