Ritchie Wellens: Doncaster midfielder is expected to hold talks with Paul Dickov

Former Rovers midfielder Wellens rejoined the South Yorkshire club on a short-term contract in the summer after leaving Leicester by mutual consent.

That deal is set to expire in four weeks' time but Dickov is keen to keep the 33-year-old at the Keepmoat Stadium.

"That (a new contract for Wellens) is something we're looking at," Dickov told BBC Radio Sheffield. "He wants to stay and we want him to stay.

"If I wasn't optimistic about him staying then I wouldn't have made him my captain."

Wellens agreed a two-year contract with Doncaster pending Sequentia Capital's proposed takeover of the club but the board of directors at Rovers opted to turn down the Irish-led consortium's investment offer.

He has made 18 appearances in all competitions this season for Dickov's team.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
