Rotherham United seal Hammill loan deal

9 January 2015

Winger joins for the season...

Rotherham United have captured the signing of winger Adam Hammill on loan until the end of the season.

Hammill, 26, joins from Huddersfield Town where he led their assists chart last season, and becomes Steve Evans’ second move of the January transfer window, in addition to Jack Barmby who put pen-to-paper on Wednesday. 

The winger, at home on either flank began his career with Liverpool where he won the FA Youth Cup in 2006, before loan spells with Southampton and Blackpool as well as a successful spell at Dunfermline which saw him appear in the Scottish cup final. 

A temporary move to Barnsley was made permanent in 2009 where he was a standout star at Oakwell earning him a move to Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He joined Huddersfield in 2013 for an undisclosed fee, before Steve Evans moved for his services. 

“Adam is a young man who can play in a wide area or centrally off a striker,” Evans said. “The lad has fantastic pace, he can go past players and has always been exciting to watch as I’ve watched him from a distance over the last three seasons.”

“I must admit I was a little surprised that he was allowed to come out of Huddersfield Town but at the same time delighted that we got the opportunity to take him.

“Adam joins us until the end of the season but then there’s obviously an option for us to make it a permanent deal as the weeks of the season go by. I am grateful to Chris Powell and Ross Wilson up at Huddersfield for acting in a professional, courteous and expedient manner which allowed us to have the lad training with the group this morning and be included in the 18 players at Brentford tomorrow.”
