Rovers have snapped up Norwich City midfielder Tom Trybull on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Trybull becomes Rovers' second signing of deadline day, following Leeds United full back Barry Douglas to the club, after he arrived on a similar deal.

Tony Mowbray has wanted to add a midfielder to his squad, and he has done just that with the addition of the 27-year-old German.

With Lewis Travis out for the remainder of 2020 with a knee injury, and a packed Championship schedule facing Rovers, the manager wanted to add more depth to his squad.

Trybull, like fellow pre-deadline day signing Barry Douglas, has recent experience of promotion from the Championship, and of playing in a 4-3-3 formation.

A holding midfield player, with an eye for a pass, Trybull started 14 times in the Premier League for Norwich last term, but hasn’t featured in any of their matchday squads this season and has been free to leave the club.

The midfielder started 22 matches in Norwich’s promotion from the Championship in 2018/19 and is under contract at the club for a further two years.

Trybull had a season with Den Haag in Holland having previously played all his football in Germany for Hansa Rostock, Werder Bremen, St Pauli and Greuther Furth.
