RUFC - Harley 'it was a no brainer for me'

Rotherham United have made a second signing before this evening's clash with Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.

Former Chelsea, Fulham, Sheffield United and Burnley defender, Jon Harley has signed on a months emergency loan from Notts County.

Speaking to MillersPlayer about his move, the thirty-two year old said, 'I spoke to the manager of Notts County, Martin Allen, yesterday morning who said that Rotherham were interested in taking me.

'It's a great chance for me to come and play games and hopefully have a successful month. Rotherham are a good club and the chance to get games in is something I've been missing this season so it was a no brainer for me.

'I've spoken to Andy Scott and everything sounds positive and set out how he wants to play the game and told me about his plans and it all sounded good to me and I'm looking forward to it.'

Asked about what he would bring to the squad, Jon said, 'I believe I've come as a left back but I'll find out what the manager has in store for me. I've played left-back and left-midfield but I'm comfortable where ever I'm put. Unfortunately, I am getting older but I still feel fit and I don't think it's affecting my game at all. Hopefully my experience will help out and hopefully things will go well for us.'

Speaking about the game this evening against Bristol Rovers, Jon said, 'It's going to be a big game for us. I played against them twice last season and they didn't have a good time last year so hopefully we can carry that on for them tonight! I've played down at their ground and it's not an easy place to go to but we'll be going there full of confidence.'
