The defender joined Rovers at the start of last season and featured 24 times as the club secured promotion to the Football League with a play-off final win over Grimsby.

The Newcastle youth product did enough to earn a new deal, on the day it was confirmed Andy Monkhouse and Abdulai Bell-Baggie would be leaving the Memorial Stadium as free agents.

Manager Darrell Clarke was full of praise for the 24-year-old full-back, telling the club’s official website: “Daniel is a terrific player who at times this season had to wait for his chance but I feel he grabbed his chance with both hands.

“I think he developed a lot as the season went on and went from strength to strength and we are hoping that will continue into the Football League.”
