Fast work as Millers boss lands winger

ROTHERHAM United have added pace to their attacking options after signing winger Alex Rhodes from Bradford City.

The speedy winger, aged 26, has become Rotherham's fourth signing and manager Mark Robins says he will address one of the failings last season - a lack of pace.

Rhodes can play on either flank but essentially on the left. He has previously been at Brentford before joining Bradford last year.

He comes on a one-year deal with the chance of earning an extension.

Meanwhile, striker Derek Holmes is leaving Millmoor.

The club and player have agreed by mutual consent and he will go after just a year at Millmoor following his move from Carlisle. He finished last season with 11 goals but did not score after netting a hat-trick at Lincoln in January.

It means that Robins will step up his bid for a target man to replace Holmes in his squad.

The Millers will leave Millmoor today and move to offices at Mangham House on the Barbot Hall estate at Parkgate. The club shop will also be on those premises.
