Rotherham have extended the loan deals of Newcastle pair James Tavernier and Haris Vuckic until the end of the season.

Full-back Tavernier and midfielder Vuckic both joined the Millers in November and have played a key role as they have consolidated a place in the League One play-off positions.

Rotherham boss Steve Evans told the club's official website: "It's fair to say that both lads have helped raise the standard in training and in games, and I believe there's still much more to come from both of them.

"James has really hit the ground running and he's been a key component in the recent good results we've had, and Haris is very quickly acclimatising to a level where it's about finding space to allow him to unleash the outstanding natural talent that he possesses which makes him a Premier League player."

Tavernier has had more of an impact during his time at the New York Stadium, making 11 appearances, while Vuckic has started only five games.
