Rotherham United new boy Curtis Tilt says he is ‘delighted’ to get the deal ‘over the line’ and is looking forward to the challenge of pushing his way into the first team.
The twenty-eight year old defender, who has signed on for a three-and-a-half year stint at the New York Stadium, told iFOLLOW that he’s looking forward to catching up with his former team mates Clark Robertson and Kyle Vassell who played with him at Blackpool.
‘I spoke to both of them before I signed,’ Curtis said, ‘and they told me what sort of club it is and how the Gaffer works. I’ll be trying to fight for a spot here and hope to help them get into the Championship.’
Asked what he will bring to the squad Curtis said he is a ‘no-nonsense’ centre-half and will do whatever he has too to get three points.
Millers Manager Paul Warne was ‘really pleased’ to get Tilt after failing to get him in the last three transfer windows.
‘I’ve got good centre-halves anyway,’ the Gaffer said, ‘but with the uncertainty of Robbo’s (Clark Robertson) injury it made it made it more important that we’ve got him. He’s quick, he’s powerful, he’s aggressive which is exactly what I want from my centre-halves.’
I think we’ve done some good business during this window – first Hakeeb Adelakun who, for me, has got better in each game he’s played in, and now Tilt and Josh Koroma on loan from Huddersfield while letting Matty Palmer out of his contract (and he’s now signed for Swindon Town) and getting some game time into Julien Lamy by loaning him out to Wimbledon.
Jobs a good ‘un.
