Rotherham United beat off competition from three clubs to land Danny Schofield on a free transfer from Championship outfit Millwall, chief operating officer Paul Douglas has confirmed
Schofield has penned a three-year contract at the Don Valley Stadium and becomes manager Andy Scott’s fifth summer signing.
Former Huddersfield and Yeovil player Schofield plays predominantly on the left wing, having started out as a striker.
Douglas told The Star: “Danny is a quality player and we were not the only club interested in him. He knows what we are trying to achieve here and we are pleased to have got him.
“Andy wants players who are of a standard that will improve the squad and that want to play for us and Danny fits the bill.”
Scott said it was a major coup to capture Schofield and has backed the versatile attacker to fill the void left by Nicky Law, who has joined Motherwell.
“Danny is a real marquee signing,” said Scott, who is reported to be lining up Gillingham left-back John Nutter as his next addition. “He played 30-plus games in the Championship last season and was a mainstay in the side that got Millwall promoted.”
