Millers complete deal for Odejayi

15 May 2012 03:09
Rotherham have completed the much rumoured signing of former Barnsley striker Kayode Odejayi from Colchester United this afternoon.

The 30 year-old forward made his name with Cheltenham Town before signing for Barnsley for £200,000 in 2007.

The former Bristol City trainee and Forest Green striker has since had spells with League One Scunthorpe and Colchester, where his current deal expires next month.

He had been offered a new deal with Colchester where he was their player of the season but has decided to move north after talks with Steve Evans.

He will join the Millers officially on July 1st.

All at MillersMAD wish him all the best.
