Rotherham United Manager, Steve Evans said that latest signing, midfielder, Michael O'Connor has the desire to win.

Speaking about the twenty-four year old, the Millers boss said, 'Technically he's different class. He will get around the pitch for us, is a talented boy and is a real welcome addition and I want to thank the Chairman and Paul Douglas who revisited the deal a couple of times as did the boy and his representatives. And, to be fair to him, he's moved a million miles in terms to come and join us.

'He scored nine or ten goals in the Championship a couple of years ago and was outstanding in spells for Scunthorpe last season. It's not that long ago that people were talking about Michael O'Connor going higher than the Championship and he's a gifted young talent and that's something we look forward to working with.

'He got a great education at Crewe and I send my congratulations to the people at Gresty Road as well as to Alan Knill for helping Scunthorpe avoid the drop.

'A young player like Michael, who is a full international, has to buy into the vision we have here and that we are going to have a right good go at winning promotion in the season ahead. As we know, there are seven places there which will give us an opportunity to show progress on last year. We spoke about things like that and how important he would be within the team and the unit and we needed a strong character who isn't just good technically but will fight. He's a fiery character and the fans will love him. He loves to tackle and, quite simply, we want him to be the best midfield player in the league next year.

'There are many reasons Michael wants to be here. Number one is the stadium and the opportunity in the project and he wanted to keep his wife and son settled.'
