'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Millers Swoop For Former Owl

Former Owls and Liverpool winger Richie Partridge is all set to complete a free transfer move to League One side Rotherham United.

Partridge joined the Owls on a six-month contract at the start of last season, and was offered a contract until the end of the season to prove his worth at Hillsborough, but was released at the end of the campaign by boss Paul Sturrock.

The Millers now have a verbal agreement with the Irish winger to sign for the club after receiving good reviews from his former boss at Hillsborough.

Rotherham boss Alan Knill said: 'Ritchie is very enthusiastic about coming here and I've no doubt that he's capable of playing at Championship level.

'Moving to Rotherham will allow him to achieve that - hopefully with us - because he's 25 now and needs regular first-team football. I spoke to Paul Sturrock about him and he has nothing but good things to say.'

Partridge made just six starts for the Owls during his season-long stint with the club. He enjoyed successful loan spells at Coventry City and Bristol Rovers after coming through the youth system at Liverpool.
