Experience So Far
That said, his Championship experience didn’t amount to too much. But he is clearly a player that possesses some potential.
Smith has had a wealth of involvement in the development teams at Manchester City.
Ryan Giggs saw enough to give Smith his Wales debut in 2018 and he has since picked up 11 caps, starting six games for his country.
Looking to Be Part of Darren Moore’s Doncaster Rovers Project
Matt Smith told the club website: “It’s a great opportunity to come here and play. The gaffer (Darren Moore) is one of the main reasons I wanted to come and play for this club.
“I’m so excited and over the moon to finally get playing again, the manager’s creating a project here and it’s something I want to be a part of.
“I think it’s a great opportunity to come and play. Even being here for 15 minutes there’s a great feel around the place and I’m delighted to be here.”
Smith is the sixth loan signing of the summer transfer window for Doncaster Rovers.
