Doncaster Rovers have signed striker Neil Roberts from Wigan Athletic.Doncaster Rovers have signed striker Neil Roberts for an undisclosed fee from Championship side Wigan Athletic.
The Wales international has signed a contract until the summer of 2007 with the League One club after both sides agreed a fee for the 26-year-old.
Roberts saw his chances of first team action diminish due to the fine form of Nathan Ellington and Jason Roberts - making only one appearance in the Carling Cup defeat at Grimsby Town.
The striker had been on loan at Bradford City recently, but Roberts has left Valley Parade to complete his permanent switch to Dave Penney's side.
"This is a great opportunity for me and I am joining a progressive club who are definitely on the up," Roberts told Doncaster's official website.
"We will be moving to a new stadium soon and the manager has explained that after gaining back-to-back promotions, he is now looking to move the club on to the next level.
"I am very much looking forward to playing a part in his plans."
