Derby County Winger Heads Out on Loan
The Yorkshire side have agreed a deal with their Championship rivals Derby County to bring the Dutch wide man to the New York Stadium for the 2020/21 season.
The 29-year-old signs for the Millers after two seasons at Pride Park. He joined the Rams from Brentford for a reported £2.8 million but struggled to hold down a regular first-team place.
The ex-PSV and Ajax man featured 48 times for the East Midlands side, scoring twice and providing two assists.
Rotherham Boss Pleased to Land Exciting Winger
Despite his disappointing return whilst at Pride Park, the Dutchman is still very capable of producing in the Championship. This is something that his new boss Paul Warne is all too aware of.
The Rotherham manager told the club website: “It’s great news that we’ve managed to get him into the football club.
“It’s not often we sign a Dutch footballer who has played for Ajax and PSV, but we didn’t sign him just because that, we signed him on the ability he showed while at Brentford.
Rotherham are currently without winger Chiedozie Ogbene who is sidelined for the next six weeks with a knee injury. However, the Millers boss made it clear that the club were already looking to bolster in that area.
“It’s obviously not good news that Chieo is injured but we were always looking for someone to assist the team anyway.
“He’s similar to Chieo in the sense that he wants to take people on. He’s got a great footballing brain and is a really smiley character.
“We like our attacking players to take risks but they also have to have a really good work ethos. I think Florian is ideal for the way we play, we unanimously agreed that he was the best person for us,” Warne added.
