The Millers secured the services of the 22 year-old yesterday and Moore told Millersplayer that he's been sniffing around to get a loan deal done for the past two months before the player signs his new contract at the KC Stadium next year.

"He's got bags of pace", Moore said, " he likes to take people on and get in the box. He played 15 games for Rochdale last year and did ever so well there.

"We've searched high and low for a winger and I think it's fantastic that Hull City have let him out because they've got a lot of good players there. We actually asked about him six or seven weeks ago but he's had a little injury and he's just come back from that.

"He'll be someone who can excite the crowd for us and they will appreciate that he's a fine player. I've brought him here to put pressure on Kevin Ellison and Stephen Brogan but he has got pace, is direct and he can play down both flanks."

Moore also fetched in West Brom defender Paul Downing, 19, and said along with Atkinson, both players stand in high regard at their clus.

"Will's well thought of at Hull - he's coming here for a month then he's going to sign a new contract with Hull when he goes back there. Paul will do a job for us if called upon, he likes to do the basics, attack, head the ball and is composed with it at his feet."
