Take a look at the background of Rovers' new signing Kyle Bennett.

During his time with Wolves, the midfielder earned a cap for England's U18's side.

Kyle only remained with Bury for one season, but it was a significant one as he helped the team to League One promotion, making 32 domestic appearances in the process.

His contributions to Bury's promotion gaining season arose interest from the then-Championship side Doncaster Rovers, who secured Kyle's services ahead of the 2011/12 campaign.

The winger's stay at Donny is his longest senior stint at any one club as despite a couple of loan spells to Crawley Town and Bradford City, Kyle was contracted at the Keepmoat Stadium until 2015, during which time he made he made over 130 appearances for the club and picked up a League One winners medal in 2013.

His next move was to Fratton Park putting pen to paper in May 2015 as Paul Cook's first signing during his Pompey reign.
