Tom Adeyemi has been named as Rotherham United's Player of the Year at tonight's Star Football Awards.

The Star’s Millers writer Paul Davis and Rotherham United manager Paul Warne presented Adeyemi with the award.

Adeyemi clinched the award ahead of teammates Danny Ward and Jon Taylor.

Rotherham United manager Paul Warne described goalscoring central midfielders as "gold dust".

The Millers' loan star has seven goals in 28 appearances this season, including the winner in last Saturday's 1-0 triumph over Ipswich Town.

A 'centre mid' scoring at the rate of a goal every four matches for a team who have fought hard but had their troubles in the Championship.

Gold dust.

It could even have been eight. Adeyemi's header in the Hillsborough derby last December should never have been ruled out. But we won't go there.

His game isn't just about goals either. He's been a big physical presence for Rotherham in all areas of the pitch.

He won't be short of suitors in the summer when he's out of contract at parent club Cardiff City, but all Millers fans are hoping the 25-year-old decides to turn his stay at New York Stadium into a permanent one.
