Loan to Doncaster Rovers[edit]

On 6 August 2016, it was announced that Houghton will join Doncaster Rovers on loan until 3 January 2017.[11] After the loan move was completed, Houghton made his debut as he started against Accrington Stanley in a 3–2 loss.[12] His loan deal was extended till the end of the season on 1 January 2017. On 1 January 2017, the loan deal got extended once more, this time until 31 May 2017.[13] On 21 February 2017, Houghton's loan spell was terminated after the midfielder suffered a knee injury during Doncaster's 1–1 draw with Luton Town on 18 February.[14]

On 31 August 2017, Houghton returned to Doncaster on loan until 3 January 2018.[15] Two days later, he made his Doncaster return during their 0–0 draw with Peterborough United, replacing Niall Mason in the 59th minute.[16] On 5 January 2018, Houghton's loan spell at Doncaster was extended until the end of the campaign.[17]
