After making a Deadline Day move to the AESSEAL New York Stadium, Josh Koroma is eager to play his part for Rotherham United as the club look to build on what has been a positive first six months of the Sky Bet League One campaign.

Having joined on loan until the end of the season from fellow Yorkshire side Huddersfield Town, the 21-year-old winger now has the task of breaking into the starting line-up ahead of the likes of Chiedozie Ogbene and Hakeeb Adelakun, but he isn't afraid of the challenge.

"I'm very excited and I just want to get started now to be honest. I've been waiting to play games and I can't wait to go out there and show what I can do," Koroma told

"When I signed for Huddersfield, it was always going to be difficult to play in the Championship considering where I had come from, but this is a good club and a brilliant loan move for me.
"We're in a good position, so hopefully I can help us push for promotion. I've seen quite a bit of footage and I know we've got the best goal difference in League One, but I'm an attacking player and I want to help us score more.
"I'll challenge the other lads for a place in the team, but I want to make them play better too and keep them on their toes. If everyone is performing, we'll get results."
Despite the deal not being completed until the final day of the January transfer window, the former Leyton Orient man revealed that the Millers had enquired about his services earlier in the month.
Like all Rotherham United additions, Koroma passed the Paul Warne personality test, and he's now looking forward to working under his new boss for the remainder of the season.
"This has been a longer term thing, so I'm just happy to get it done. I heard about the fans, it's a good stadium and the manager is excellent too. 
"I met with the gaffer the other day and he seems like a genuine, funny guy that wants his players to work hard and succeed. 
"The staff like young players, so why not give it a shot - we're top of the league and everyone wants promotion back to the Championship."
