Rotherham United have confirmed that they have signed goalkeeper, Conrad Logan on a six month loan and admit that though they ‘d like to they probably won’t get him for any longer than that.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Manager, Andy Scott that the twenty-five year old ‘keeper is another one he has brought in who has had experience at getting out of League Two and another one who’s come down from the Championship to join the Millers.

‘Leicester rate him very highly,’ Scott said, ‘and, credit to the lad, he wants to go out and play games and he’s going to add more competition for that place.

‘He went on loan to Bristol Rovers last season and nearly kept them up, in fact, he’s always done well wherever he’d gone on loan.’

Asked about why just a six month loan, Scott said, ‘That was what Leicester wanted. He’s in the last year of his contract and they want to see where he is and they see big things for him. But it was important for us that we just didn’t do it month to month. We wanted to make sure we knew where we were for at least six months but hopefully we might be able to push it on and take it until the end of the season. Obviously, he’s got to fight it out with the other lads to get in the side in the first place

‘He won’t be able to play against Leicester when we play them in the Carling Cup and we understand that and that it’s sensible.

‘We’ve brought in a few players from the Championship now and I’ve been very impressed. You can see the quality in training which is terrific. They work very hard and fitness is good and it gives us a lot of options all over the pitch and it means we can play different formations and different combinations and, because the fitness is so good, we’ve been able to get into some eleven v eleven games and play the players in different formations which has been very helpful.’
