Doncaster Rovers have signed Leeds United striker Billy Paynter for an undisclosed fee.

Rovers boss Dean Saunders revealed two weeks ago that he was hopeful of securing a deal for the front man.

He becomes the second player to move to the League One side this week, after defender Jamie McCombe joined on a free transfer on Sunday.

Paynter joined Leeds from Swindon in June 2010 but struggled to make an impact at Elland Road, scoring just three times in 27 league appearances and spent time on loan at Brighton last season.

Prior to signing for Leeds he scored 26 goals in League One for the Robins in 2009-10.
