Lewis Price’s switch to Rotherham confirmed by Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal

Rotherham have signed Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Lewis Price on a two-year deal.

The 31-year-old, who was out of contract at Hillsborough, put pen to paper across South Yorkshire until the summer of 2018.

Price, whose career began at Ipswich and has taken in stops at Derby and Crystal Palace, has become the Millers’ second signing of the summer and will fight Lee Camp for the number one spot at New York Stadium.

The Millers, who will return from their pre-season tour of Poland later this weekend, are also hoping to add former Middlesbrough and Sunderland midfielder Dean Whitehead to their ranks while chairman Tony Stewart still intends to break the club’s transfer record.

“Lewis Price has moved to Rotherham. He’s signed a two-year deal,” Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal said.

“We were happy with Lewis but wish him all the best. In the period that he was here, he was a very good pro.

“Everybody liked Lewis and he did very good work.”

Millers boss Alan Stubbs added: “The deal came up quite late. Andy Dibble (goalkeeper coach) has been looking to see what is available, and once we were made aware that Lewis was a possibility we moved quite quickly to do the deal.

“We are delighted that we have managed to conclude the transfer now.”
