Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans was pleased to have got the services of striker Jordan Slew from Blackburn Rovers yesterday before the transfer deadline closed.

The Millers Boss told Radio Sheffield last night that the tall Sheffield born striker is initially here until the beginning of March with the option of looking to keep him until the end of the season.

‘I’ve tried to sign him a couple of times in the last few months,` Evans said, ‘and I did think even at noon today that he was going to a league one club but I persuaded Michael Appleton to let me have a chat to him. After the chat he went away for a while and got back late this afternoon saying he`d love to join us and we`re delighted to get him on board.

‘He`s a real desire and a real hunger and is exceptionally quick with raw technique which is exceptional for where we ply our trade.

‘We`ve been on the search for a striker for most of the month and he`s a real good signing for us.`

I just hope the fans give this lad a bit of leeway after what I’ve been reading on the social network sites – some are already having a ‘pop` at Evans for bringing him in and he`s not even kicked a ball in anger for us yet!
