Martin Allen said he was disappointed to lose him: “He has been a model professional. He’s a great lad and he came at a time when it has been difficult for me to get him into our team.

“He was one I certainly wanted to keep, but I can fully understand why Rotherham needed him back.”

Meanwhile, Chesterfield have moved to secure their own 17-year-old forward Levi Amantchi on a two-and-a-half-year contract, with an option for a further 12 months.
