What Was Said

Rotherham announced via their website they had signed the Bristol City winger on loan for the rest of the season.

The Millers have been looking for fresh options on the wings and Adelakun fits that bill.

The former Scunthorpe United winger has struggled for game time at Bristol City and will be hopeful of helping Rotherham return to the Championship.

Speaking to the club’s website, Adelakun said “In no way, shape or form do I think it is going to be easy. I know I have a massive point to prove to myself and to everyone else. I’m just here and ready to start doing that.

“I haven’t set myself any targets as of yet. Now this is all done, once it has set in, then I can start thinking about it. To start with it is just a case of adding to the team that is doing so well.

“Obviously everything has just been positive and I’m just excited to get going.

“The gaffer just told me his ideas really. Obviously, I’ve played against his teams a few times and he’s seen me, so he just told me that he’d provide me with a platform to play and work with him to help the team push on.”

Adelakun could make his Rotherham debut this weekend when the Millers face head to promotion rivals Oxford United.

A Big Signing for Rotherham

Signing Adelakun could be a real coup for the Millers. The winger is ready to prove himself once again after a disappointing time at Bristol City.

Rotherham won the race for the talented winger with several other League One clubs chasing his signature. He could play a crucial part in Rotherham’s promotion charge if he recaptures the form, he showed at Scunthorpe United.
