Ilunga signs loan deal at Doncaster

West Ham United's Herita Ilunga has joined fellow Championship side Doncaster Rovers on a three-month loan deal.

The 29-year-old full-back, who has fallen behind George McCartney in the Upton Park pecking order since Sam Allardyce's arrival, has also played for St Etienne and Toulouse. He becomes Dean Saunders' second signing after former Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda joined on a short-term deal last week.
