Rotherham United are on the look out for a goalkeeper.
Last season’s number one Marek Rodak went back to his parent club Fulham and won’t be coming back for a third loan spell.
Rotherham United’s Assistant Manager Richie Barker told Radio Sheffield this week that the club could probably do the same as they did with Rodak which was giving a young ‘keeper from a Premier League side games that he probably wouldn’t get with his parent club.
‘But,’ Richie did say, ‘it is about signing the right goalkeeper. And, if that goalkeeper is permanent and within our remit then we would do a permanent deal.’
I think Marek Rodak had a good journey with the Millers – he started in League One and went to Wembley where he helped us get back into the Championship and then was more or less a permanent fixture for the whole season. And, in my humble opinion, that can only be a good thing for Fulham, who now find themselves in the second tier, to have someone with experience to learn from.
Then I got to thinking about bringing in another ‘young ‘keeper’. But haven’t we got a ‘young ‘keeper’ of our own in Laurence Bilboe?
Although he’s been on the bench a number of times the twenty-one year old, who spent the back end of last season on loan with Havent and Waterloo, has yet to make his first team debut. I can understand that perhaps the coaching staff thought he wasn’t quite ready for the Championship but I do wonder if he shouldn’t at least be considered for League One?
