Scott: Brings in Hoskins
Rotherham have signed Southampton striker Sam Hoskins on an emergency loan until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old, whose deal can be extended should the Millers make the play-offs, comes in as a replacement for Shaun Harrad following his return to parent club Bury.
Hoskins has made two senior appearances for the Saints this season, both in cup competitions, and also had a loan spell with League One Preston, but failed to make the pitch.
Millers boss Andy Scott is expecting big things from his new recruit from St Mary's.
"He is a young lad who they think a lot of down there," Scott said. "He is sharp and quick and likes to score a goal.
"We have watched him a lot of times and just think he has got that little something different.
"He carries the ball well and is direct. He can play in any one of the positions we have got up top so that does help."
Hoskins could make his Millers debut at Oxford on Saturday.
