Former England international Rangi Chase has signed to play for League One side Doncaster when his ban for cocaine use ends on 14 July.

Chase, the Man of Steel in 2011 and part of England’s 2013 World Cup squad, can train with the Dons from 14 May.

The 33-year-old has played for Widnes, Castleford and Salford, and made more than 200 top-tier appearances.

“We’re delighted to be able to bring a player of Rangi’s quality to the club,” Dons chief executive Carl Hall said.

“We’re giving him an opportunity to show what he’s capable of in a Dons shirt, and without putting any pressure on him – I believe he’s the biggest signing this club has made since Tony Kemp.”
