League One transfer latest: Doncaster poised to sign ex-Arsenal youngster

All the latest summer transfer news from League One...

Doncaster Rovers need to strengthen their squad this summer if they are to return to the Championship at the first time of asking, and manager Paul Dickov revealed a whole host of trialists for their pre-season friendly with Lincoln City this weekend. Whilst it was previously reported that former Arsenal left back Cedric Evina would be joining Crawley Town, it now appears that he could be signing for Rovers having played in that pre-season game.

The 22-year-old was a key part of the Arsenal reserve side from 2009 to 2011, despite never making a first team appearance for the Gunners. A spell with Oldham Athletic followed before he found his way back to London with Charlton Athletic, but Cameroonian was released at the end of his contract this summer. Having worked with Dickov during their time together at Oldham, it's no surprise to see them linking up again.

Another full back on the move in League One is Craig Alcock. The former Peterborough United man left London Road upon the expiration of his contract earlier this summer, but having struggled to find a new club, Posh offered him the chance to return - only for manager Darren Ferguson to never hear from the right back.

Now it's become apparent as to why. Sheffield United have struggled to land top targets John Brayford and Kieron Freeman at right back, but now it seems that they are poised to land Alcock as their sixth signing, joining the likes of James Wallace, Chris Basham, Andy Butler, Jamal Campbell-Ryce and Ben Davies at Bramall Lane.

Finally, Crewe Alexandra have produced a number of notable players through their youth setup. Robbie Savage, Danny Murphy, Dean Ashton, Nick Powell and Luke Murphy can all be claimed as "their own" by the Gresty Road club, and striker Max Clayton is another who is attracting Premier League interest. The 19-year-old's contract has expired and he's currently training with Sunderland with a view to a deal, but the Black Cats have been told to pay up £1m for his signature or the transfer will go a tribunal given that Clayton is under 23.
