Manchester United loanee Ethan Galbraith has been labelled as Doncaster Rovers’ ‘top performer’ of the League One season so far.
The Northern Ireland international was one of several United youngsters to leave the club on loan this summer.
The midfielder has certainly benefitted from the move as he has already made 22 appearances for the Keepmoat Stadium side.
Embarking on the first loan move of his career, the 20-year-old has established himself as a key part of Rovers’ side, who are braced for a relegation dog fight.
Doncaster are currently 23rd in League One after 21 games and are six points off safety.
Despite being brought to the club by former Red Richie Wellens, Galbraith hasn’t been impacted by Wellens’ sacking and has started both the games being managed by Gary McSheffrey since Wellens’ departure.

The 20-year-old who has one goal and two assists to his name has made 20 starts so far this campaign.
Galbraith has made quite the impression at Doncaster and the local newspaper Doncaster Free Press believes that the two-time Northern Ireland international has ‘arguably’ been ‘Rovers’ top performer of the season to date’.
Despite being signed on a season-long loan, the paper believes that Doncaster may be ‘concerned’ that Manchester United could ‘look to accelerate’ Galbraith’s ‘learning elsewhere’.
However, if Galbraith is playing regularly and gaining vital first-team minutes at senior level, United would be foolish to pull the youngster out of Doncaster mid-season.
There is no guarantee he would be an as frequent started at the next club he went to, and if he is being dubbed as the club’s player of the season, Galbraith could prove to be the difference in keeping Doncaster in League One, which would be a massive achievement for him.
