Speaking to the clubs official website themillers.co.uk Warne said; “We wanted Adam and he had a few options but we managed to convince him to come, We need a bit of cover at the back, I think the centre halves have been excellent to be fair but competition is good and if it makes the squad stronger then it makes the starting XI stronger, so it's good news for us."

“He knows he's going to have to compete so hopefully we'll get the best out of him and if the lads keep him out of the team for a while then they're doing their job.”

“He can really play, he can pass out from the back, which we need,” he continued.

With the issues that have caused Bury to be expuled from the football league, the 26 year old hasn't played any competitive football as yet this season but he's joing the Millers in good health; “He's not too bad physically to be fair. His blood lactate test came back pretty good and he would have been in the second running group. He's not in bad fettle but obviously he's a bit match-rusty."

“It's our job to try and get some games in and when I get an opportunity to play him, I will. 

“If we ever do choose to play with three centre halves we can. We've had Thommo on the radar for a couple of weeks now and myself and Rich really liked him as a kid when we met him and he settles in straight away.” Warne added.
