New Rotherham United loan signing Scott Wootton admits he doesn’t know what the future holds for him.

The 23-year-old centre-half has joined the Millers on loan until January after being frozen out at parent club Leeds United during a season of turmoil at Elland Road.

And he says that for now he’ll simply relish the chance to play again.

“It’s been a quite crazy time at Elland Road. I think I’ve played only four games there this season, so obviously that’s been very frustrating,” he said.

“ There have been a lot of changes. I’m just happy to be here and be a Rotherham player at the minute. I’m not going to look further down the line. I’m just going to take each day and each game as it comes, train hard, try to keep my place in the team and focus on it game by game.

“Come January, who knows what will happen.”

Wotton, who began is career at Manchester United, usualy plays in central defence but made his Rotherham debut at right-back against Blackpool last Saturday in the injury absence of Frazer Richardson.

“I don’t really mind (whhere I play) as long as I playing,” he said.

“I’m just happy to be back on the pitch and back playing. I’ve played at right-back before in different loan spells. I don’t see it as uncomfortable for me now, the amount I’ve played there.

“Staying in the Championship was a massive reason for me coming here. I had offers from League One clubs higher up the table.”

Rotherham reserves drew 4-4 at Mansfield yesterday. Joe Skarz was carried off.
