Steve Evans strengthens his squad...

Rotherham United have completed the signing of Aston Villa youngster Courtney Cameron on an youth loan until January 5th.

Boss Steve Evans moved to strengthen his squad which has been decimated by injuries lately, by securing the versatile winger.

A former Northampton Town youth product, he moved to Villa Park in 2009 after being spotted playing in the Cobblers youth academy.

The left-sided winger, who can also operate at left-back, played in all 23 of Villa’s reserve games last season, and signed his first professional contract in May 2011.

“I have been playing for Aston Villa under 21s and was made aware a few clubs had expressed an interest in signing me,” Courtney told Millers Player.

“My agent got a call from Rotherham United and then from Steve Evans and it went from there.

“The stadium is fantastic; I spoke to the manager and the assistant and was impressed with what they had to say, so I am just really excited about getting started.”

This is the 19-year-olds first loan and he is looking forward to helping the Millers strikers by providing the service from the left-side.

“I am a wide man by trade but I can play left-back or on either flank,” added Courtney.

“I like to stay wide and get crosses into the box and provide for the strikers, and hopefully I can do that.”

There is a full interview with Courtney on Millers Player now.
