READ | Millers tie up new deals for Price and Jones

3 August 2020

Rotherham United are delighted to confirm that the relevant paperwork has been completed to tie up new deals for Lewis Price and Billy Jones, who have both agreed one-year extensions at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Millers boss Paul Warne had previously expressed his desire to keep the experienced duo at the club and now the formalities have been completed on the pair penning new agreements which will run until the end of the 2020/21 campaign, subject to EFL and FA ratification.

Price is one of the current longest-serving players in Paul Warne’s side, having arrived following his departure from Sheffield Wednesday in 2016, while former Sunderland man Jones brought a wealth of experience to a relatively youthful side competing in the Sky Bet Championship ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Whilst confident in their on-field abilities, Warne cited the qualities the pair bring around the training ground and in the dressing room as key factors in deciding to secure their futures for a further year.

“It’s good news that they’ve both agreed to stay," he beamed.

“They both bring experience into the dressing room and they are the types of characters that we like here at Rotherham United.

“Their experience rubs off on the younger players and we do have a young group here. I know that I can rely on them both if and when they are in the team.

“They bring a lot to our culture which is massive for me and we need to make sure we do have a balanced group age-wise in terms of freshness and experience.

“Both definitely have a part to play both on the pitch and in the dressing room and whilst we pride ourselves on bringing young players in and improving them, that wouldn’t be possible without the likes of Pricey and Billy passing on information to the younger lads that you only get from having the careers they’ve had."
