Revell extends Millers stay

18 April 2013

Striker signs new deal

Rotherham United striker Alex Revell has extended his stay with the club, after penning a new two-year contract at New York Stadium.

Revell, who signed for the Millers in August 2011 yesterday put pen-to-paper on the deal that will keep him at the club until 2015. After topping the scoring charts in his first season at the club, he has featured on 44 occasions this campaign, netting six times, including a late header at the far post to clinch a victory over AFC Wimbledon recently.

“I’m delighted to get the chance to stay at the club for another two years,” Revell exclusively told “It was a no-brainer due to what’s happening at the club with it being an exciting time. I’ve had great support while I’ve been here and I’m obviously delighted to get the chance to extend my stay here.”

With the Millers currently sitting third in the table ahead of the two remaining games, the striker cited the lure of returning to League One as a major factor in his decision to stay with Steve Evans’ side.

“Hopefully we can get the club back to where it belongs, which we’ll do by getting into the next league and hopefully doing the same again the following year.

“You play football to play in atmospheres like Tuesday night in Bradford because that was amazing. As I’ve said before it’s such an exciting time to be at this football club as a result of what the chairman and manager have built here.”

The industrious striker added that his fine form this season has been facilitated by the quality of the players around him, with the squad boasting some of the finest attackers in the division.

“We’ve got some really gifted players here and playing alongside someone like Nards who has got 20 goals this year I believe he’s got to be considered one of the best in the league. Kieran’s also come in and done a good job in the last couple of games but we’ve also got Kay who is a great asset to the club as well.”

Millers boss Evans was thrilled to tie the 29-year-old down to a new deal and admitted the striker’s impressive form this season has seen him fend off interest from clubs keen to lure him away at New York Stadium.

“I’m absolutely delighted that Alex has agreed to extend his time with us. Since I arrived, the lad has been outstanding. His performances have seen many clubs register an interest but within minutes of making it clear I wanted him part of our future, the lad wanted to sign to stay with the Millers.”
