Rotherham United`s latest loan signing, Richard Naylor says that he is really pleased to be here.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, the thirty-four year old defender said, ‘I`ve trained a couple of days this week and met the lads and they are a good bunch and things are looking positive. I`ve spoken to Andy Scott and he`s got a good reputation in the game and I`m sure he`ll get the best out of the lads. We are just outside the play-offs so if we can string a few results together it should be good.`

Asked what he thought he would bring to the Millers, the former Ipswich, Leeds and Doncaster player said, ‘I`ve been around a long time and I`m quite a good talker so hopefully I can bring that to the club.

‘I`m thirty-four and players play well into their thirties now so I hope I`ve got a few more years left. I had other options but they were short term deals and I wanted to get somewhere where I could spend a bit of time and hopefully grow with the club.

‘I was a regular in the Doncaster side and then things changed in November and they signed some big named Premiership players on loan so they are going down a different route there and good luck to them but I`m just looking at Rotherham now.

‘I`ve kept myself fit though I`ve just had a finger op but you can keep your fitness going while you are out with that. I haven`t missed a days training even when I had surgery on my finger back in November so I`m pretty fit. The lads won the last game and you usually stick with a winning side but we`ll have to see what the gaffer wants to do but I`m ready to play when ever he wants me.

‘There`s a big future ahead for this club and hopefully I can be part of it.`
