Rovers looking at former Sunderland player

Former Sunderland striker Oumare Tounkara, who scored eight goals in 52 games whilst on loan with Oldham Athletic, is training with the club this week.

The 22 year old Paris born player began his career with Ligue 2 outfit Sedan in 2008/09 and joined Sunderland in the summer of 2009.

He signed for Oldham Athletic in August 2010 in a season long loan deal and enjoyed another loan spell with the League One outfit at the end of last season.

He played against Rovers in both league fixtures between the clubs in the 2010/11 season.
