Shown the door but welcomed back – Lewis Price given second Rotherham chance

Rotherham have handed a new deal to goalkeeper Lewis Price just weeks after releasing him.

The 33-year-old was told he would not be offered a new deal by boss Paul Warne at the end of last season after he made just two appearances in the 2017-18 season.

However, Warne was always open to bringing him back and Price has signed on for a further two years.

 

He joined the Millers in 2016, making only 21 appearances as he fell behind Lee Camp, Richard O’Donnell and Marek Rodak in the pecking order.

He was a valuable mentor to the young Slovakian last season as the Millers won promotion to the Championship.

Rodak could still return to the club from Fulham.

The Millers were hoping to get a deal done in time for their return to pre-season this week, but that has not materialised.

The Cottagers are set to lose David Button to Brighton and they are understood to be not willing to let Rodak out until they find a replacement.

Warne has also spoken to other goalkeepers and is keen to sort a number one out as soon as possible.
