Bristol Rovers new £24.1m squad market value as Boro, Liverpool, Everton & Aston Villa men valued - gallery
Bristol Rovers have some valuable players in their ranks - but how much are they worth? Football Manager 2023 tells us.
Bristol Rovers have had a commitment to giving young players a chance, whether it's their own players or from borrowing them from Premier League clubs.
Joey Barton has tried to find a a balance in recruiting players permanently, whilst also signing players on loan to help beef up the squad. The loan market has been firmly utilised and this season, there have been several players who have impressed whilst being borrowed.
Middlesbrough's Josh Coburn is approaching double figures whilst Lewis Gibson, who is on loan from Everton, captained the side in their last match against Portsmouth. In January, we saw Jarell Quansah, Ellery Balcombe and Lamare Bogarde all joined from Premier League clubs Liverpool, Brentford and Aston Villa. All three have had opportunities, with Quansah slotting in the defence, whilst Bogarde has put in several man-of-the-match displays in the centre of midfield.
It's not just about loan players however, with Aaron Collins having the season of his life with 15 goals and 11 assists, in what is his first taste of League One football. Collin has had talk of a Wales call-up, whilst Barton slapped a fee of £4.5m on him in January, comparing him to Scott Twine, who went for that price to Burnley from MK Dons last summer.
