MillersMAD.co.uk exclusively broke the interest in Noble yesterday lunchtime, and now the Millers have beaten a league one club to the signature of the former Exeter skipper after he joined on a 2 year deal.
Speaking to themillers.co.uk the gaffer was a happy man; "David is a player that myself and Paul Raynor have worked with before and we are delighted at securing his signing," Steve Evans said.
"Yesterday afternoon he was very close to committing to a League One club, in fact he was on his way to sign for them, but after another 30 minute chat about what we are trying to achieve he told me he wanted to be part of it and was on this way to Rotherham."
"I had previously taken the time to show him around the New York Stadium and outlined our plans for Rotherham United. I knew at that stage that a player of the calibre of Noble would be sought after and there was still a lot of work to be done if I was to make him a Miller."
"He is a talented individual and will help us unlock defences in the season ahead. The other thing that we know from first hand experience is that the boy is a winner and a fierce competitor. It goes without saying that once again I must acknowledge the support of the Chairman and the Vice-Chairman Richard Stewart."
We wish David all the best with the club.
