MIDFIELDER Matty Palmer has joined League One side Rotherham United for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old has made 14 appearances for the Brewers this season and scored in the 3-1 home defeat to Sheffield United back in November.

Palmer, a graduate of the youth academy, has made 159 appearances in all competitions for the Brewers, scoring eight goals and assisting 13 in the process.

He joined League One side Oldham Athletic on a youth loan back in January 2016 before being recalled in April.

Matty secured the award for most improved young player at the end of his first season as a scholar at the club and impressed then-manager Gary Rowett with his "calmness and maturity".

Manager Nigel Clough said: "They (Rotherham) made an offer and the club has accepted it. I think regular first-team football will be the attraction and his contract is up in the summer, so, I think that a fresh start with Rotherham, in the mix for promotion, will be a good move."
