With injury ruling out Chiedozie Ogbene until the new year at least, the gaffer has signed Florian Jozefzoon from Championship rivals Derby County on a seasons loan ahead of tomorrows transfer window closing.

Speaking to the clubs official website themillers.co.uk Warne was please to have signed the former Ajax and PSV winger.

“It’s great news that we’ve managed to get him into the football club. It’s obviously not good news that Chieo is injured but we were always looking for someone to assist the team anyway, t’s not often we sign a Dutch footballer who has played for Ajax and PSV, but we didn’t sign him just because that, we signed him on the ability he showed while at Brentford."

“He’s similar to Chieo in the sense that he wants to take people on. He’s got a great footballing brain and is a really smiley character. We like our attacking players to take risks but they also have to have a really good work ethos. I think Florian is ideal for the way we play, we unanimously agreed that he was the best person for us."

“Rob Scott and his recruitment team have done a lot of work and we’re thankful to Derby as well who have been very helpful.”

“I did a lot of research on him asking people who had trained and played with him and they didn’t have a bad word to say about him, We had a Zoom call with him and all the conversations we had with him were really positive."

“I think it’s a really great signing for us. We spoke about his story, his upbringing and his life, we get on really well and I’m buzzing he’s joined us.

“He can play either on the wing or as a ten, he’s got two good feet and he’s quick. He’s got great attributes and he’s a really good addition to our squad.”

The 29 year old is in contention to feature against Norwich on Saturday; “He’s training today, he should do a full training session today and train tomorrow as well. We’ll make a decision on him after that, We need to pick a team that we think will win and who will give us the most benefits on the pitch. A fit Florian Jozefzoon would definitely do that, so we will assess him and see.”
