The 20-year-old signed for Rovers on a four-year deal for a fee of around £500,000 from SC Amiens earlier this summer. At 6 feet 3 inches, the defensive-minded player is already an imposing figure but Roberts has been impressed with his pre-season showings to date and has tipped the new arrival as one to watch next season. Roberts was on target twice in the recent friendly win over Cambridge and will hope to score against Leeds in Rovers' next assignment on Saturday. Discussing the pre-season build-up with the Lancashire Evening Telegraph, Roberts said: "We have been doing a lot of training so it is nice to get on the ball, and score a couple of goals. "There have been one or two good performances as well. I thought the new lad Steven Nzonzi was outstanding so it all bodes well for the future."
