Rotherham United’s latest loanee, Marcus Bean, has told The Advertiser that he would be happy to stay at Millmoor and help the club win promotion.

Bean, who is on loan from Blackpool, and made his full debut on Sunday in the three-one win over Peterborough, said, ‘I’ve seen more than enough already to say that Rotherham could challenge this season.’

The twenty-two year old is at Millmoor initially for two months because of an injury to Mark Hudson but he says if he performs to his maximum in the games before Hudson returns he could give manager, Mark Robins, something to think about.

He had been a bit out in the cold at Blackpool for a while and he hadn’t played a full ninety minutes for over a year and he said ‘I can’t explain how much I loved it on Sunday.

‘I was getting a bit bogged down at Blackpool and when Mark Robins came and asked me to come to Millmoor I jumped at the chance and ex-Miller, Shaun Barker, told me what a good club it is.

‘I love the fans at Blackpool but I don’t really fancy going back. Things haven’t gone to plan there. Although, if the gaffer should want me back (that’s Simon Grayson) I will have to go as I am contracted to them.

‘I have been surprised at the quality of the young lads here and a bit of hard work on the training field and a bit more quality in the final third and I think the club has a good chance of bouncing back up.

‘I am happy here and it’s been really easy to settle in. I would have no problems with staying for the remainder of the season – even longer.’
