Rotherham United have re-signed striker Richie Barker on an emergency loan.
Barker has signed from Hartlepool for three months and will be available for tomorrow's game against Grimsby Town.
Hopefully, the move will be made permanent in the January transfer window.
Speaking to the Official Site, thirty-two year old Barker said, 'I'm delighted to be back. I still live in Rotherham and the opportunity to come back and play for them was too good to turn down.
'I'm looking forward to working with Mark Robins and Breck and Dawsy are still here so it will be good to work with them too.
'The Gaffer told me of the Chairman's plans for the club and I am really looking forward to getting started.
'You know, they say never go back but I am going to give it a real go.'
Richie is well known to Millers fans as he played for them for three years from 2001 to 2004, scoring twelve goals in one hundred and forty games.
Barker started his career with the Owls, although never actually played a competitive game for them and after a couple of loan spells at various clubs he found himself at Brighton who eventually signed him for a season. After Brighton he went to Macclesfield and joined the Millers in 2001 where he helped them get promotion to the Championship. In 2004 he moved to Mansfield where he became a crowd favourite and scored forty goals in the three years he was there. In January last year Danny Wilson brought Barker to Hartlepool.
Speculation has been rife about Richie Barker moving back to play for the Millers since the summer.
Vital Rotherham welcomes Richie back!
