Derby County’s Kelle Roos looking to prove his worth on loan at Rotherham United

16 July 2015

Derby County youngster Kelle Roos wants regular action in the Sky Bet Championship this term, after completing a season-long loan move to Rotherham United.

The 23-year-old joins the Yorkshire outfit looking for his first taste of consistent game-time in The Football League, and he is optimistic that Millers boss Steve Evans will give him that opportunity.

“I am very pleased to get this loan deal sorted; it has happened very quickly,” the goalkeeper said to Derby’s official site.

“It is great that I will have the opportunity, I hope to play first-team football at Rotherham.

“It’s an ideal move for me because every player wants to play at the highest level they can and it’s great that I’m going to another Championship club.

“I’m aware of the level already having been around the Derby squad last year and also playing a few cup games against Championship sides.”

Roos’ move to Rotherham was announced at the same time as the news that he had penned a new three-year deal with Derby.

The Dutchman is now looking to repay the faith that the Rams have shown in him, and he is aiming to display his class over the forthcoming campaign.

“I hope I can have a good year; I am confident that is what will happen and then I came come back in 12 months and take things from there,” Roos added.

“I am obviously very happy to sign a new contract with the club. My main aim this year is to get games on my CV and come back to Derby next year having proved myself at this level.

“It’s nice to have people around you that have faith in you and Derby County have shown that in me. Now it is down to me to show to everyone that I am worth it.”
