Rotherham United can confirm that the club have reached an agreement with first-team goalkeeper Lewis Price to mutually terminate his contract with the club.
The 36-year-old was set to remain with the Millers until the summer of 2021, but has opted to end his time with the club to seek a new opportunity.
Price is one of the current longest-serving players in Paul Warne’s side, having arrived following his departure from Sheffield Wednesday in 2016.
Whilst he only racked up a handful of appearances during his time at AESSEAL New York Stadium, Price has been an instrumental figure in the training ground and has played a big part in the development of young goalkeepers such as Marek Rodak, Daniel Iversen, while also aiding current first-team goalkeepers Viktor Johansson and Jamal Blackman.
Rotherham United manager Paul Warne was full of praise for Price, who he insists was a key member of the dressing room during his stay with the Millers.
“Pricey (Lewis Price) has been excellent, a great pro, always trained really well and when I called on him to play he did really well for us,” Warne told www.themillers.co.uk.
“I’ve got a lot of time for him as a goalkeeper, as an athlete, as a pro and as a man. He’s a really good bloke and I was sad to see him go but I couldn’t stand in the way of a great opportunity for him.
“Everyone contributes here and Pricey was definitely a contributor and that is why he stayed at the club for so long. His overall contribution to the football club was phenomenal.”
Everybody at Rotherham United would like to thank Lewis for his contribution to the football club and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
