New Doncaster Rovers boss Grant McCann has had a busy start to life as Donny boss, with the club turning down two bids for key man John Marquis

Aberdeen and Peterborough are the teams in question, according to HITC the club have turned down two bids for the striker, in the regions of £500,000 and £750,000.

Peterborough see Marquis as an alternative to Jack Marriott, who looks to be heading for the exit door, with various Championship clubs monitor his situation closely. Aberdeen, however, are looking to further bolster their attacking options, as the gap between Celtic and the rest of Scotland grows stronger each season.

Marquis was instrumental in the clubs return to League One in 2017, netting 26 goals on route to their third-place finish. Marquis impressed again last season, scoring 14, a less impressive tally but given the clubs odds of succeeding, Marquis’ goals proved crucial.

Donny fans will be hoping the club can continue to knock back any bids for their talisman, as they look to build off Darren Ferguson’s 15th place finish last season.

McCann himself has yet to make a signing as Donny boss so far, but he will no doubt be looking to add to the two already done prior to his arrival. Tom Anderson made his loan move permanent from Burnely, whereas 19-year-old Max Watters joined from Ashton United.

Watters joins with big potential ahead of the new season, following in the footsteps of fellow Donny counterpart Alfie May, who also made the step up from England’s eighth tier, to the Keepmoat in 2017.
