The 22-year-old full-back has joined the Millers on a short-term deal to provide cover for the injured Mark Bradley.

Tavernier has made nine senior appearances for the Magpies although he has yet to start a Premier League game with only two substitute appearances in the top flight.

He has previously had loan spells with Gateshead, Carlisle, Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Shrewsbury.

"James is a very accomplished full-back, who can play on either side of the pitch and if needed can step in and do an excellent job at centre-back if required," said Rotherham boss Steve Evans.

"With the injury to Mark Bradley, and Rob Milsom who covers us at left-back also having a minor injury issue, this is an excellent signing for us."

Tavernier is likely to make his Rotherham debut in Saturday's home match against Gillingham.

Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
