Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore moved quickly to sign Leeds United’s Tom Elliot on loan until January to cover for injured striker, Ryan Taylor.

Nineteen year old striker, Tom, already has League Two experience as he’s been loaned out to both Macclesfield and Bury in the last eighteen months and Moore told the Official Site that he was ‘fortunate’ to get the England U17 and U18 player.

‘There’s not that many strikers about at the moment, and, to be honest, he was on his way to Northampton. But, we spoke to his agent and, luckily, he decided to come to us.

‘He’s had league two experience and is a bit of a handful. He played for Bury against us last season which is when I first noticed him, but he came off with a hamstring injury. I’ve also seen him play for Leeds Reserves against our Reserves and he played very well.

‘He’s a big lad who puts himself about and has pace.’
