Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Ryan Giles has officially completed a loan move to Rotherham United.
The 21-year-old will embark on a new chapter for the remainder of 2020/21, after being recalled from his stint with Coventry City early.
Giles started the season really well with the Championship club and nailed down his place in the side.
But he recently struggled for minutes and starts especially.
For the final game against Reading before his recall he was actually left out entirely, with five other loanee’s selected for the matchday squad ahead of him.
Giles now joins Rotherham in the Championship and will be hoping to help them stave off relegation come the end of the season.
Currently the club sit 22nd in the league table and are five points adrift of safety.
Manager Paul Warne said of the youngster (via Rotherham’s official website): “He’s a player that we’ve liked for a couple of years and I’ve unsuccessfully tried to sign him before, but we’ve finally convinced him to come.
“We joked that we’ve printed off about three different shirts for him, so he can have this year’s version now!”
On social media, some Rotherham supporters have expressed their delight about the club’s capture of Giles:

Great signing by all accounts. Played a lot for Coventry already this season & fits our system. Gives Warne a lovely selection headache as well…
