Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says that loan signing, Sam Wood is the right addition to the squad.

Speaking to MillersPlayer, Scott said, 'I brought Sam out of non-league and he did very, very well at Brentford and was a major influence on our winning the League Two title that year.

'He's a very tenacious, hard-working player with a good left foot. He can play left-back, left-midfield and central-midfield and will play anywhere and give his all. Originally he was a wing-back but he played a lot of games left-midfield and has filled in at left-back but he's a winger by trade. But having the ability to play in several positions does help and he's got goals in him. He's very tough and has lots of energy and is a little terrier who fits into the dynamic of the group and, although he's a different type of player, he will replace what we are losing with Gareth Evans.

'He wants to do well and play football and he's been disappointed at the lack of opportunity at Brentford. He's a whole hearted player who realises, coming out of non-league, how lucky he is doing the job that he is and he wants to give it his all every time he goes on the training pitch or for a game.

'He knows a few of the lads here and I'm sure he'll fit in with the group and I'm delighted to get him. I've been after him for a while because I've always believed he'd be a good addition to the squad.'

Asked if there's a possibility of a permanent move, Scott said, 'We don't know yet. The initial response is that they want to get him out on loan but I'm sure if he hasn't featured in their plans too much so far there might be a possibility of doing something in January. I'm grateful to Brentford for letting him come to us and hopefully we can give him the games and if he gets to go back then he will go back with games under his belt and a bit of confidence. If he does well enough maybe there will be an opportunity to see if we can make the deal permanent.'
