Andrew Fisher has interest from at least two League Two clubs as Rovers weigh up the next step for his development.

Fisher penned a new three-year deal at Rovers at the start of the season and is highly rated by the club.

He played three times for the first team last season, all in the Checkatrade Trophy, and was on the bench for the 1-0 win over QPR in November when Jayson Leutwiler deputised for David Raya who missed out with the facial injury sustained in the draw at West Brom.

Fisher, 21 next month, is keen to further his development with a loan move which could be sanctioned by Rovers, who considered the possibility of a move in a summer.

The club would have the call-back option on the young goalkeeper, who is currently third choice behind Raya and Leutwiler.

Rovers have high hopes for Fisher, who has played 10 times for the Under-23s this season.

His place for Damien Johnson’s side would likely be taken by Oliver Byrne should Fisher leave on loan this month.

Meanwhile the Under-23s made it four consecutive wins when they beat Chelsea 1-0 on Saturday afternoon.

A Joe Nuttall penalty, his ninth goal in five games, gave Rovers a fourth league win of the campaign.

Nuttall too has loan interest, from six clubs across League One and League Two, but Rovers will wait to make a decision on his future.

He has been among the goals for the Under-23s of late, but hasn’t made a first team appearance since August.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hardcastle has returned from his loan spell at Port Vale, with his season-long deal cut short after making just two League Two starts for the club.

Rovers are yet to make a decision on the short-term future of defender Scott Wharton who has been short of game-time at League Two side Lincoln City.

Midfielder Brad Lyons, who has impressed since joining on loan from Coleraine, will make his move become permanent later this month, and he is expected to now leave on loan.

However, Mitchel Candlin, signed from Walsall in August on loan, is set to return to his parent club, with Rovers opting against making that deal permanent.
