Rotherham defender Joe Mattock happy to play the waiting game in bid for new contract

Rotherham left-back Joe Mattock will not force the issue as he hopes to earn a contract for next season.

The 26-year-old sees his two-year deal expire at the end of the campaign and, despite an impending drop to League One, is keen to stay at the Millers, calling them “his club”.

Mattock, who joined from Sheffield Wednesday, was a contender for player of the year after a solid display last term, but his long-term future at the club seemed under threat with the £300,000 arrival of Ben Purrington in January.


Still, Mattock wants to be around next season.

“Hopefully there is a contract that gets offered to me before the end of the season because Rotherham to me is a good team,” he said. “We might not be doing too well but it is my team, I am thankful to be at Rotherham.

“I live in the area and I would be more than happy to be here next year. I will be open for talks at any time but I am not going to go in there and demand this and that, I will wait for the gaffer or chief exec or whoever to call me in.”
