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.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
