Bristol Rovers have signed Palace midfielder Hiram Boateng on loan until 2nd January.

The Eagles’ current Development Player of the Year makes the move back to the south-west after spending the majority of last season on loan at Plymouth Argyle, whom he helped to the League Two play-off final where they lost to AFC Wimbledon.

He will now finally make the step up to League One this season with the Gas, who won automatic promotion in May and have claimed four points from their first four games in their new division.

As well as his exploits with the Pilgrims, Boateng made his Premier League debut against Swansea City back in February and played in most of the Eagles’ first-team friendlies this summer, including all three of their games in the USA and Canada.

Making his debut back in 2013 in an FA Cup tie against Stoke City, he has made three first-team appearances for the Eagles and also spent time on loan at Crawley Town.
