Rovers are set to net a small slice of Bournemouth’s transfer fee after Connor Mahoney’s move to Millwall.

Mahoney left Ewood Park for the Premier League Cherries back in 2017 but has made just two FA Cup appearances at the Vitality Stadium.

Now the winger has left to join Millwall for a reported seven-figure fee, signing a long-term deal at the Den.

The 22-year-old, who started his career with Accrington Stanley, turned down the offer of a new deal at Rovers to join Bournemouth, but being under the age of 24 the club received an initial £425,000 in compensation.

As part of the agreement set out by the Professional Football Compensation Committee, Rovers are also due 20 per cent of any profit made by the Cherries meaning there will likely be some money coming their way.

Mahoney moved to Ewood Park in 2013 from  Stanley and made his Rovers debut as a substitute in the FA Cup defeat at Manchester City in January 2014, aged 16 years and 11 months.

However, it wasn’t until the turn of 2017 that he was given a chance to shine on the first-team stage, making 21 appearances in all, six of them starts.

Mahoney played 32 times on loan for Birmingham City last season, scoring twice.

He finished the previous campaign with Barnsley having failed to make his mark on the South Coast.
