RUFC - O'Donnell on his loan move

RUFC - O'Donnell on his loan move

Rotherham United haven't done a lot in the transfer window but they have brought in young goalkeeper, Richard O'Donnell from neighbours, Sheffield Wednesday, on a three month loan.

This is the second time the nineteen year old has been at Millmoor - he was here in the summer and he had hoped to get a season long loan with the Millers, but manager, Mark Robins decided to sign Steven Cann instead. And it is because of an injury to Cann that O'Donnell is here now.

Speaking to The Advertiser, O'Donnell said, 'It's my first year as a professional. I've played in a few reserve games for Wednesday but I will get more chance to do that here.

'There's nothing better than to train with the first team squad and for a young player you need to experience that first hand. Andy Warrington is a brilliant guy and he's doing well and is good to learn from because he has bags of experience.'

He thinks his own qualities are having a good kick and being a good organiser and communicator and being solid at handling but says, 'Being young I do have to work on my decision making.

'League Two is a good standard and I'd be more than happy to play at this level, although I think Rotherham can play higher.'

Mark Robins says, 'We decided to take Steve Cann instead of Richard in the summer because he was a bit further down the line in terms of development. Richard has good presence and has very, very good handling and is a good shot stopper. He's here in case we need him.'

O'Donnell said, 'If the opportunity arises I am fit and ready to get in there.'
