Rotherham United defender Richard Wood has joined League One side Fleetwood Town on loan.

The defender, formerly of Sheffield Wednesday, will initially spend a month with Fleetwood after agreeing an emergency loan deal.

Wood has yet to feature for the Millers this term, but played 10 games on loan at Crawley last season.

"I am delighted that Richard has taken the opportunity to get some first team football," Millers boss Steve Evans said.

"He is a top class professional and needs to be playing and he gets a great opportunity to do that with Andy Pilley's Fleetwood Town."

Graham Alexander's men are currently 15th in League One and are at home to Port Vale this Saturday, where Wood could make his debut.
