WARNE’S DE­LIGHT AT SEMI STAY­ING

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Ben Baker

POS­I­TIVE news has been thin on the ground at Rotherham, but man­ager Paul Warne in­sists fans have some­thing to smile about af­ter sign­ing Semi Ajayi on a per­ma­nent deal.

Ajayi, 23, has been a vir­tual ever-present in the Millers de­fence since ar­riv­ing on loan from Cardiff City in Jan­uary.

He will stay in South York­shire un­til the sum­mer of 2020 af­ter turn­ing his loan move into a per­ma­nent one on Tues­day.

“He has done re­ally well,” Warne said. “He has re­ally im­pressed us around the train­ing ground with his at­ti­tude.

“He al­ways wants to play, even when he has been sore af­ter games.

“That is the kind of men­tal­ity we want here, I think you can re­ally judge some­one’s char­ac­ter from their de­sire to go through the pain bar­rier for the team.

“We are all work­ing hard with him so he keeps im­prov­ing. The staff are try­ing to get him to be more vo­cal, and he is com­ing along well with that side.”

IM­PRESSED: Semi Ajayi
