JOSH Vickers has joined Rotherham on a free transfer until the end of the season.

The Basildon born goalkeeper, who trained with the Millers over the summer after leaving Lincoln, has signed a short-term deal following Lewis Price’s exit.

Boss Paul Warne said: “We have signed Josh Vickers, I had him in pre-season to train and there was never a deal for him because I had my goalkeeping department boxed off.

“But obviously with Pricey leaving Josh hadn’t got himself a number one role at a club that he wanted, so he was available.

“When Pricey left, it was an absolute no-brainer for me, it is the healthiest goalkeeping department I have had. He has joined now Pricey has left.”

Vickers played for both Canvey Island and Concord Rangers during the early stages of his career.
