Sheffield united finalize January signing with Rotherham United man

​​DEADLINE-day signing Femi Seriki has revealed how he was pointed in the direction of AESSEAL New York Stadium by Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder.

After concluding a loan agreement in the last hours of the winter transfer window, the youthful player is now a member of Rotherham United’s Championship survival struggle for the remainder of the campaign.

The 21-year-old had established himself as a regular reserve player for the Blades in the Premier League, but his manager—a former Millers player—suggested that he move down a league to increase his playing time.

“After speaking with the gaffer, he recommended that I go out and gain some respectable exposure,” Seriki remarked. “The Championship is the ideal location for me to carry out that task.” I can’t wait to play.

Since joining to Bramall Lane from Bury in 2019, the wing-back has had stints on loan at League Two Rochdale, National League North Boston United, and Belgian club Beerschot. He made his Rotherham debut as a substitute against Southampton on February 3.

When he was chosen for a 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in 2002, he got a taste of life in the second division with the Blades, and he is now eager for more.

He claimed that “being put in different scenarios has helped me mature.” In order to reach your desired destination, you must overcome several obstacles.

“This represents the next phase of my growth. There are many individuals that watch the Championship, which is a very competitive league. When I played two years ago, I was really anxious. Since then, I’ve matured, and I’m eager to compete against elite athletes.

The deadline day of February 1 was exhausting for him. After spending the previous evening on bench duty at Crystal Palace, he returned to South Yorkshire at 5am, and his New York switch from the Millers’ South Yorkshire neighbours wasn’t completed until close to 11pm on the business day.

It wasn’t just Wilder who he spoke with. He also had a conversation with Leam Richardson, the head coach of Rotherham, which assisted him in making his decision.

A speedy player who thinks he can contribute in both halves has joined the Millers, expanding their options on the right wing.

He declared, “I’m direct and I’m quick.” “I enjoy placing crosses inside the box. I enjoy both attacking and defending. Just be aware that I will be erratic.
