Redfearn delighted to land Shinnie

NEIL Redfearn says new signing Andrew Shinnie will be an asset to the Millers' attack.

The 26-year-old has completed a loan from Birmingham City until the end of the season, joining winger Chris Burke and Luciano Becchio who signed last week.

"Andrew is another terrific attacking option," boss Redfearn told the club's website.

"He is someone who can play just off the front or just in behind the front. He is a real creative talent and he will give us more strings to our bow.

"He understands his position, he has played at this level for a while now and he has done well for Birmingham.

"I think that he is a player that, on his day, can unlock the best defences in this division. He will be a really good acquisition for us."

Shinnie has made nearly 50 league appearances for Birmingham since joining them in 2013 from Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

He's played 17 times for City this season, the last in the FA Cup at the start of the month.
