Millers full back Richard Brindley has joined Scunthorpe United on an emergency loan deal until January.
Brindley has featured just three times for Rotherham this season and has started just once, against Norwich on October 4 which was his last appearance.
The 21-year-old has recently recovered from a minor injury.
Millers boss Steve Evans told the club’s website: “Richard is a young player that is very much part of the Steve Evans plan at Rotherham United, but by his own admission he now needs a run of games to allow him the opportunity to compete for a place.
“He joins a good manager in Mark Robins at a very ambitious club in Scunthorpe United and we will be tracking his progress closely through to the January period.”
Brindley joined the Millers in May 2013 and made 24 appearances in the promotion winning season.
