"There is no reason for me to go elsewhere at the moment, Rotherham are a club close to my heart. I'm happy to stay here. I'm very much settled." the defender told the Star.

Meanwhile the 29 year old reckons that the Millers have what it takes to challenge for promotion despite an indifferent start

"We've got the same quality as the promotion side, if not more," he said. "I see it in training and I see it in the games.

"Teams are playing so differently against us this season than they were last time around. They were coming at us more two years ago, trying to outplay us and going toe to toe. This year, that's not the case at all. Teams coming here are sitting in and looking to get on the counter-attack."

"We're unbeaten in our last three matches so we're going in the right direction. We have to work out how to deal with teams who come here and put all their men behind the ball. Teams will come here and sit in. We have to be more patient. We're rushing things too much. We have enough good players, players with quality on the ball, to wear out opposition defences."
