21 year-old Josh put pen to paper last night and Evans explained to the clubs website why he'd brought the youngster in.
''I am delighted we have secured his signature given the lad had a couple of alternative loan options at a higher level but he wanted to be here after he spoke to both Eric Black and Colin Hendry.
"Both those guys spoke very highly of Josh to me and also explained what they felt he could bring to the Millers.
''I have seen the lad a number of times and he is the type of player we are always looking for. He is young, has a great desire, is hungry to play first team football and I am delighted to give him that platform.
"This lad has a great left foot, gets forward to support the front players, is quick and like Bob Harris he defends with pride."
