READ | Olosunde set for AESSEAL New York Stadium departure

7 June 2021

Rotherham United can confirm that full back Matt Olosunde will depart AESSEAL New York Stadium this summer.

The American defender was offered fresh terms by Millers boss Paul Warne last month, but has opted to turn down the contract on the table as he looks to pursue a new challenge elsewhere.

The 23-year-old signed for the Millers in the summer of 2019 from Manchester United and went on to make a total of 72 appearances in Rotherham colours.

His highlights include helping the team to promotion from Sky Bet League One in his maiden campaign in South Yorkshire, as well as scoring his first ever career goal against Everton in the Emirates FA Cup at the turn of the year.

Rotherham United boss Paul Warne was keen to place on record his thanks to the outgoing defender following confirmation that he would be moving on to pastures new.

"On behalf of everyone here, I would like to say what a pleasure it has been to work with Matty for the last couple of years.

"As we try to with every player that comes through the door, we have worked on making him a better player than when he joined us and I hope that he agrees that we have been successful in doing so.

"He leaves the club with absolutely no animosity as he looks to pursue a new challenge somewhere else and goes very much with our blessing. Matty and his representatives felt as though it was time for a fresh start and are hopeful that he can secure a deal to continue playing in the Championship or at similar standard somewhere else in the world - something we totally understand.

"Matty is a good lad who has grown in confidence both on the pitch and off it and I hope that our footballing paths cross again in the future."

 

Everyone at Rotherham United would like to thank Matt for his contribution during his time at the football club and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
