Rochdale Football Club are delighted to announce the return of Sam Hart on loan from Blackburn Rovers.
The 21-year-old has joined the club on a deal until the end of the season.
Hart spent four months on loan at the Crown Oil Arena last season, helping Dale to avoid relegation from Sky Bet League One on the final day, and he is excited to be back at the club.
“I’m really happy,” said Hart. “I’ve got a bond with the Football Club and the people here, so I’m excited to be back.
“I know the lads, the manager and all the staff, so it should be quite easy for me to settle in and get doing what I need to do.”
The defender came through Manchester United's Academy set-up before moving to Liverpool during the 2012-13 campaign at the age of 16.
He quickly progressed from Liverpool's Under-18 side to become a regular for their development squad, also gaining valuable league experience by spending six-months on loan at Port Vale during 2016-17, making 16 appearances.
He joined Rovers for an undisclosed fee from Liverpool at the start of the last campaign, making seven appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side before joining Dale on loan in January.
Welcome back, Sam!
