Rotherham United have signed Norwich City left-back Harry Toffolo on a month's loan.

The 20-year-old is set to make his debut in tomorrow night's Championship home clash against second-placed Reading as Joe Mattock is ruled out with a shoulder problem.

Toffolo, who played for the Canaries against the Millers in the Capital One Cup at AESSEAL New York Stadium this season, made 30 appearances on loan at Swindon Town last year and is highly rated at Carrow Road.

Mattock is seeing a specialist today after falling awkwardly in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Brentford and leaving Griffin Park with his arm in a sling.

"He's a really talented young boy," said Rotherham manager Neil Redfearn. "We're really grateful to Norwich for letting us have him. He's a really attack-minded left-back."

Also missing tomorrow night for the Millers in Redfearn's first home match as manager are midfielders Lee Frecklington and Joe Newell, who are both injured, and Richie Smallwood, banned for one game after picking up five yellow cards.

Attacker Danny Ward is also a "major doubt" after a back spasm, said Redfearn.
