Jordan Slew: Only two appearances for Rovers

Slew has made only two appearances since joining Rovers in August 2011, and a six-month loan spell at Oldham this season was curtailed when he suffered a back injury.

But Millers boss Steve Evans has been impressed with what he has seen of the 20-year-old, and he is delighted to have him on board.

"Jordan is a young man who I have seen produce a number of outstanding performances," said Evans.

"I have landed him after asking the question to a number of recent Blackburn Rovers managers. Thankfully Michael Appleton has sanctioned the move.

"I watched Jordan on a number of occasions whilst he was on loan at Stevenage last season and on those occasions I watched him live, he was by far the best player on the pitch.

"He is young, has explosive pace, is powerful and has a real work-ethic which I'm sure will see the Millers support take to the lad.

"It has been a long search to land a striker of this quality and he will be on the training ground with us in the morning as we prepare to face the in-form team in League Two, Northampton Town."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
