Doncaster Rovers have signed Brazilian defender Felipe Mattioni on loan until January, a day after he joined Everton on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old is the second player to join Rovers from Everton this week, following the arrival at the Keepmoat Stadium of Connor Grant.

Mattioni signed for Everton after spending the past few weeks training with the Toffees.

He was a free agent after leaving Spanish side Espanyol in the summer.

The right-back has also had spells at Mallorca, Italian giants AC Milan after beginning his career in his native Brazil at Gremio.

He could make his Doncaster debut in next weekend's FA Cup tie against Stalybridge.
