Bristol Rovers have completed the permanent signing of Cambridge United forward Rory Gaffney.

Gaffney, 26, has been on loan at Rovers for part of this season, scoring five goals in seven games.

He began his career at Limerick and moved to Cambridge in January 2015, but has only played seven times for United.

"I'm just very happy and relieved it's all sorted," Gaffney told BBC Radio Bristol. "I didn't want to leave and go back to Cambridge United."

Gaffney has signed an 18-month deal at Rovers and chairman Nick Higgs hailed the signing.

"It's a very important signing for us as we bid to achieve a second successive promotion," Higgs told the club website.
