Rotherham United have made a double loan signing.

Goalkeeper Kelle Roos has arrived from Derby County on a season-long loan, while his iPro Stadium teammate, Farrend Rawson, has agreed a six-month deal.

Teenager Rawson played four games on loan for the Millers last season and was the ineligible player who cost them a Football League hree-point deduction.

Millers manager Steve Evans describes him as an England player of the future.

Roose, aged 23, was understudy to Lee Grant for the Rams last season and is highly rated at the iPro where he is tied to a long-term contract.

Evans has been looking to bring in a new goalkeeper all summer. Arsenal’s Emi Martinez, who had a successful loan spell at AESSEAL New York Stadium last season, had been a target.

Roos made five appearances for County last season, three in the FA Cup and two in the Capital One Cup.

The youngster, who came through the ranks at PSV Eindhoven, had been expected to challenge Grant for the No 1 spot next season, but new Derby boss Paul Clement has signed former England keeper Scott Carson.

He joined them before the 2014/15 season after a successful trial. Before then, he played nine matches for Conference side Nuneaton and had been watched by several Premier League clubs, spending time training with Liverpool and Everton.

Both players will join the Millers on their three-match tour to Scotland which starts tomorrow.
