Doncaster Rovers could be set for a welcome influx of funds, with Sky sources revealing that an Irish consortium are looking to invest in the Championship side.

And the consortium could be willing to plough as much as £20m into Rovers, which would give boss Paul Dickov the opportunity to strengthen his squad.

Former Oldham boss Dickov is about to begin his first campaign in charge at the Keepmoat Stadium, having been hired in May when Brian Flynn moved into a director of football role.

Flynn led Rovers to the League One title last season, secured in dramatic fashion with a last-minute goal in a winner-takes-all showdown at Brentford, who had missed a penalty moments earlier.
Hopefully none of this will happen before the first game of the season.

Good luck to them. I just hope that it works for them. Leeds and Forest went through some uncertain times with their new owners but would like to see a change.
