Norwich City's young full-back Harry Toffolo has joined Championship strugglers Rotherham United on a one-month emergency loan deal.

Toffolo could make his Millers' debut in Tuesday's home league game against promotion hopefuls Reading, subject to the paperwork being completed, and will join Norwich team mate Tony Andreu at the New York Stadium.

The highly-rated academy graduate travelled to Yorkshire yesterday and trained with his new team mates on Monday morning. Toffolo made his senior debut for City against the Millers in the 1-0 Capital One Cup win back in August.

'I first heard the news yesterday morning,' the 20-year-old told the Millers' official site. 'I was getting ready to spend my Sunday with my girlfriend but then I got the news from my agent, and I was very keen to come to Rotherham. I really enjoyed the game earlier in the season with Norwich. I was impressed with the stadium from the minute I turned up, so I am looking forward to playing here for Rotherham now. I have trained today and all the lads have been great with me so I am really excited now to be here.

'I spoke to them (Tony and Vadis Ofoe) and also to John Swift who I played with at Swindon last season, and they were all very complimentary about the place. Tony has been involved here so it has been good to see him and knowing him already will help me settle in.
