READ | Warne insists loan winger fits the Millers mould

31 January 2020

Rotherham United boss Paul Warne says his latest loan addition, Josh Koroma, will give him another exciting option in attack between now and the end of the season.

The Millers chief admitted that the Huddersfield Town youngster had been on the Rotherham United radar for some time prior to his eventual arrival on Deadline Day and is another player he believes has the attributes to thrive at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

"We tried to sign him last January. He's always been on our radar and we've always liked him,” Warne told

"He is used to, especially at Leyton Orient, playing in teams that really go for it, score goals and assist goals.

“They are the sort of players that we want here. He's another great athlete at a good age and he's got pace. He's got a bit of a swagger about him, which I think you have to have to play here.”

As is so often the case with potential Millers recruits, Warne met with the London-born attacker prior to completing the paperwork on the deal and is confident following that encounter that he will seamlessly slot into his current squad.

"I think he'll fit the group really well and I'm very pleased with it,” he added.

"What I specifically like about Josh is that with Huddersfield's permission, I went and met him yesterday, with his mum and son and agent.

“I spent a bit of time with them and told him that our wingers are decent, so all the best at trying to get in. I told him I couldn't guarantee him one minute of play but at the same time we don't sign players here and don't play them.

"Hopefully he'll come in and do really well but the thing he gives us, is that in losing Carlton and Jake, he can play out wide, either side and up top.”
