Rotherham United defender Jake Hull has committed his future to the Millers by signing a new three year deal – subject to ratification from the EFL and FA.

After coming through the Academy at the club the twenty year old signed his first deal with Rotherham in April 2021. He made his debut for the Millers in the Papa John’s Trophy in September 2021 scoring the fifth of six goals away against Doncaster Rovers, his second once coming in the same competition in a five-nil home win over a Manchester City U21 side. Last season he had loan spells with National League North outfit Guiseley before joining Hartlepool United of League Two in January.

Speaking to iFollow Jake said he thinks he’s matured a lot going on to say he was ‘buzzing’ to get the deal done.

‘It’s a great club to be at,’ the young defender said, ‘and hopefully I can go on from strength to strength and keep developing. It’s hard work playing for Rotherham because we are a high intensity team but hopefully I can push on and play in the first team, in this stadium, in front of all the fans.

‘Woody (Richard Wood) has been massive for me he’s taught me all sorts of stuff, he’s been like a fourth coach and I’m also trying to emulate Wes (Harding) so hopefully I can keep learning off them put it into my own game and develop.

He is expecting to go out on loan again soon saying that moving to Hartlepool for five months last season helped him mature, Jake carried on, ‘It’s all good experience but I want to play for this club as early as possible which means I need to be ready for that step up. I’ll do whatever it takes to play for this club, it’s all that I want at the minute.’

Congratulations Jake on your new contract.
