Chris Burke becomes Rotherham's second signing of the week

Rotherham have further strengthened their squad with the capture of Chris Burke on loan until the end of the season.

The-32-year-old, who is a Scotland international, joins the Millers from Nottingham Forest for the rest of the 2015-16 campaign and follows striker Luciano Becchio through the door.

Burke comes with a strong pedigree of playing in the Championship, having represented Cardiff, Birmingham and Forest and he is looking forward to getting some more at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

“This is actually the first loan spell of my career and I’m delighted to be here and I hope we can be successful together and stay in this division and start climbing the table as quickly as possible," he said.

“I’ve played in the Championship for many seasons now, probably about nine or ten in total, it’s a tough league but a very enjoyable one at that and definitely where I want to be,” he enthused. 

“My situation at Nottingham Forest was that I wasn’t playing much and I wanted to go out and play football and Rotherham were a team that showed intent to offer that to me and hopefully we can be very successful together."

Burke featured 10 times for Forest this season, including 90 minutes in a 2-1 win over the Millers in August.

He becomes the 11th signing of Neil Redfearn's reign as Rotherham manager and is set to make his debut against Cardiff on Saturday.

Redfearn knows exactly what he is getting:

“Chris is a very experienced player and he knows the level,” the boss said.

“He has got that turn of pace, the ability to go past people to create and score. 

“He adds good competition and he adds some real Championship quality that perhaps we have been lacking a little at times.”
