Omar Bogle has signed for Doncaster Rovers on a permanent deal from Charlton Athletic after falling down the pecking order at The Valley.

Boyle Deemed Surplus to Requirements at Charlton

After signing with Charlton in October from Cardiff City, Bogle has scored just twice in 17 matches for the south London club.

Following the arrival of fellow forward Jayden Stockley from Preston North End on loan, the former Cardiff City striker’s chances have come few and far between. As a result, the transfer looks to be in the best interests of all parties, with Bogle keen to feature regularly.

Doncaster Looking for Promotion Push

The signing will be a welcome boost to Doncaster as the end of the January transfer window approaches.

Rovers are currently fourth in League One and pushing for promotion to the Championship, sitting just six points off top spot but with three games in hand.

Doncaster will be hopeful that the capture of Bogle can add more goals to a side that are already the joint-third highest scorers in League One. The well-travelled striker will be relishing the chance to start more often after his spell at Charlton didn’t quite go to plan.

The South Yorkshire side have a must-win game against table-toppers Lincoln City on Saturday, where a victory could lift them as high as second in the league.

What Was Said

The striker revealed the opportunity to work with Darren Moore was too good to turn down.

He said: “As soon as I knew of the interest from the club it was an easy decision, the manager is doing a really good job and it’s exciting to come here.

“The manager was a big factor and it’s always important to go somewhere you know you can play to your strengths.

“I’ve heard a lot of good things especially from players that have worked with him before, he’s got a really good reputation in the game.”
