READ | Newell agrees one-year contract extension

20 April 2018

Rotherham United midfielder Joe Newell has signed a one year contract extension with the club which will see him remain at AESSEAL New York Stadium until the summer of 2019.

Newell, who joined the Millers from Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee in August 2015, has played 110 times since arriving in South Yorkshire and has been an integral part of Paul Warne’s side this season.

The 25-year-old has helped himself to seven goals this season including a last gasp strike against Doncaster Rovers from the penalty spot, and has turned out 40 times to help his side to fourth position in the third tier table.

Boss Warne told www.themillers.co.uk:

"It's great for the club and for Joe.

"Joe wanted to stay here and by giving him this extension it suited everyone. He deserves it for the season he has had. He has been amazing this year and I'm really pleased for him.

"I said at the start of the season that we are trying to build a squad of players here where we obviously tweak every season, but we don't make wholesale changes. We want to grow a team together, and improve them. I want Joe to be a massive part of our future.”
