“It was an important decision for me as it is my first loan spell, I know I will have to work hard to earn my place in the team.

“I am a hard working player, I like to score and assist as much as possible. There is plenty of competition for places which I am excited by.”

Meanwhile, Taylor has set his sights on goals after signing a one-year deal with Rovers.

The experienced forward, 30, has been reunited with manager Grant McCann, whom he worked with at Peterborough.

He said: “It has been great to be around the club during pre-season, and I would like to thank the gaffer for offering me this contract.

“I am looking forward to knuckling down and showing supporters just what I can do over the course of the season.”
