His sole appearance for the Championship pacesetters this season was in the Carling Cup last week and he will now spend the next month at Belle Vue.
Warnock admits there was strong interest in the exciting forward but Forte opted for a switch to Doncaster.
"There was significant interest in him but Jon considered the location when he made his choice and we are pleased to be able to help Doncaster out," Warnock told the club's official website.
"Additionally, being so close at hand will help us monitor his progress."
