Odjidja-Ofoe talks to www.themillers.co.uk...New Millers’ acquisition Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe says he will be giving everything he has to help his new club following his loan switch from Norwich City on transfer deadline day.
The exciting midfielder completed a last minute loan move to AESSEAL New York Stadium on Tuesday alongside fellow Canary and was thrilled to have got the deal done in time.
“It was proposed to me to come and get some game time and come and help the club and I was really keen to,” he enthused.
“I played here two weeks ago in the cup and I saw the atmosphere in the stadium and how great the fans were that night so I hope they continue to support us that way and stay behind us through all the games.
“I think it was 10 minutes before the end that we sent the papers so it was really close but as soon as we got the call me and Tony were very happy and we came here immediately to see the stadium and get welcomed by the gaffer.”
The Belgian international trained with his new teammates for the first time on Thursday but was alongside a familiar face in Tony Andreu who also joined up with the Millers for the first time.
“I think it’s nice to have somebody around that you know. Obviously it’s not easy to come into a dressing room where everybody has been really close together for a long time and you’re new, but everyone is very nice to us and are helping us a lot to settle in.
“The training game today was really helpful in us getting to know each other and we have to bond, especially on the pitch because that’s really important.”
The 26-year-old played an instrumental role against the Millers when his Norwich City side visited AESSEAL New York Stadium in the Capital One Cup last month, turning in a display that left Steve Evans in awe of his display.
“It’s nice when the coach has confidence in you and believes in you. I’m very happy to be here and I’m hoping to put in good performances so that he and the fans continue to have the same idea. I will try my best to help and just give every game 100 percent.
“It’s good that now we have some time off to train together and get to know each other. Then next week we start at Charlton and hopefully there will be a space for me in the starting 11 and I can help the team but I will always try my best whatever the gaffer says and if he needs me I will always be ready."
