Young stopper Josh Chapman has swapped Sheffield United for Rotherham United, agreeing a deal with the Millers until summer 2022, with an option of a further 12 months.
The 18-year-old completed his apprenticeship at Bramall Lane without a professional deal despite being a regular starter for the Blades’ Under-18s side last season, and has impressed while training with Rotherham’s goalkeeping department during pre-season.
Goalkeeping Coach Andy Warrington told the club website: “Josh is a promising young goalkeeper who has fitted right in with us since joining training over the last few weeks.
“He comes in to add to a goalkeeping department that we are already very happy with and I am sure that he will continue to drive standards in training, but also learn a lot from both Josh (Vickers) and Viktor (Johansson).
“He comes from a great family and is a lovely kid, who wants to learn. I’m sure he’ll do plenty of that during his time here and of course, we’ll be doing all we can to help him progress his career.”
