Sheffield United’s promising young talent, Louie Marsh, who was a top priority for Doncaster Rovers in the summer transfer window, joined Grant McCann’s side on deadline day on a season-long loan.
At just 19 years old, Marsh is versatile, capable of playing as a striker or attacking midfielder. He’s set to add healthy competition to former Blades academy graduate Joe Ironside. And with last season’s top-scorer, George Miller, sidelined due to injury, Marsh has a big chance to show everybody what he’s capable of.
“I can see him doing both,” McCann said when asked what position he plans to use Marsh in. [Doncaster Free Press]

When speaking about Sheffield United’s young talent, McCann remarked:
“Louie is very clever in terms of his play and his movements. He’s good in one-vs-one situations as well.”
Marsh started his Premier League journey on the bench for Sheffield United’s first three games this season. He made his debut in the Carabao Cup against Lincoln City last week. While he missed Saturday’s match due to joining after the registration deadline, there’s a chance he could feature when Rovers face Wrexham this weekend.
Upon temporarily departing Bramall Lane, to make the Keepmoat his new home for the 2023/24 season, Marsh penned a new three-year contract with the Blades – highlighting that Paul Heckingbottom does see the 19-year-old one for the future.
