New deal for goalkeeper Laurence Bilboe at Rotherham United

GOALKEEPER Laurence Bilboe is looking to take his career to the next level after agreeing a new one-year contract with Rotherham United.

A product of the club's Academy, the youngster's deal will take him through to June 2020.

The Walsall-born stopper signed his first pro contract at the AESSEAL New York Stadium in 2016. He has featured on numerous occasions in the first-team matchday squad but has yet to make his professional debut.

Bilboe told Millers' website: "This will be my fourth year now as a professional. I really enjoy it here, the staff have always been really good to me and we have a great bunch of lads in the dressing room. It was an easy decision for me to sign.

"I came through the youth system and progressed to being involved in the reserves and then it has been a great experience being on the bench for first-team games. I've had some valuable experience going out on loan as well.

"Now I am looking to push on next year and see where it takes me."
