Wood delighted with new Millers deal

WEMBLEY hero Richard Wood says he's delighted after agreeing to a contract extension which will keep him at Rotherham United until the summer of 2020.

The club skipper, who scored a brace in the League One Play-off Final which secured the Millers' ascension back to The Championship, has been rewarded with an extended contract after making 42 appearances in all competitions last season.

Said Wood "I'm really pleased, I'm settled here.

"I'm close to the training ground, my family are settled and at my age it is good to have the security. I am really happy, I am pleased to sign and I am really looking forward to the challenge of staying in The Championship.”

The experienced operator lead by example last season, often coming in for praise from boss Paul Warne for his leadership skills in what generally was an inexperienced squad of players.
