Doncaster boss Dave Penney has had mixed news in the transfer market.Doncaster boss Dave Penney has conceded defeat in the chase for Markus Heikkinen, but has been impressed by trialist Sean McDaid.
Penney was hoping to snap up Finland international Heikkinen, who left Aberdeen when his contract expired this summer.
However, despite thinking they had done enough to snap up the defender, Penney has conceded that he will not be getting his man.
"It looks like Heikkinen is going elsewhere," said the Doncaster boss.
"We tried our best and we thought we'd done it. I think him and his agent have probably used us to get other clubs interested."
A silver lining has been the form of trialist McDaid who has impressed Penney in pre-season.
"We have had [McDaid] on trial and we have put him on a week to week contract because he's done quite well in the two games we have had so far," confirmed Penney.
