The Millers confirm the signing of Danny Ward....
Rotherham United have signed Huddersfield Town forward Danny Ward on a one month emergency loan, subject to Football League ratification.
Ward becomes the second signing of the day following the arrival of Adam Hammill on loan from the same club earlier today.
The former Bolton Wanderers operator has penned a deal with the Millers after concluding discussions this afternoon at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
“Young Danny Ward is an exciting player,” boss Steve Evans told www.themillers.co.uk
“He can play wide, up as a striker or indeed as a number 10. He has good ability, excellent movement and he was one of the players who was instrumental in Huddersfield playing well. We are delighted to have him here and we look forward to seeing him in action.”
After making his professional debut with the Trotters in 2009 in the Premier League the 24-year-old enjoyed several loan spells with Swindon Town and Coventry City before signing on loan with Huddersfield.
During his loan spell at the John Smith’s Stadium Ward helped the Terriers to the League One play-off final but they were defeated by Peterborough United.
After signing permanently for a fee believed to be around £1million he helped Town to promotion via the play-offs after a shootout victory over Sheffield United.
Last season he played 40 times in league and cup and has featured for Chris Powell’s side 14 times this campaign.
