Manager Paul Warne allowed him to leave to build up his senior experience and the plan has always been for Kayode to return in the summer and fight for a Millers place next year.

The centre-forward has been a big hit in Cumbria playing mainly as a winger and scored six goals in 29 appearances before being sidelined by an ankle injury early last month.

He made his return in yesterday's 0-0 draw at Newport County.

He told the Advertiser earlier this season: "I want to become a regular in the first team at Rotherham. That’s the ultimate goal right now. That’s where I did my two years as a scholar.

"Moving to England, Rotherham were the team I came to. They’re ‘my’ club. I want to score goals for Rotherham."
