Rovers take punt on Ameobi

23 July 2008 11:53
Doncaster Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll is looking forward to working with teenage striker Tomi Ameobi after snapping up the Leeds United starlet on a one-year contract. The 19-year-old, who had a spell on loan with Scunthorpe United last term, impressed the Rovers boss during a recent trial spell at the Keepmoat Stadium. "He's one for the future. He's a couple of years away from being the finished article, but he's got a presence about him," O'Driscoll told the club's official website. "He's six foot, aggressive and can replace Mark McCammon, who gave us that last season. "Tomi's 19 and he's one we think that, if we treat him right, we could develop him."
