Minstermen miss out on Kearns

Former York City loan midfielder Danny Kearns has joined League Two rivals Rotherham United on loan until the end of the season, with a view to a permanent move in the summer.

"I am not at liberty to reveal the League One and League Two clubs who have sought his signature in the last two weeks" - Steve Evans
Minstermen chief Gary Mills had earlier hoped to bring the 21-year-old attacking wideman back to Bootham Crescent following a recent loan spell with the club.

Kearns made a dozen appearances for York until being recalled by Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson at the end of November. His only subsequent game for his parent club, however, came as a late substitute in their New Year's Day victory against Barnsley.

The Republic of Ireland Under-23 international therefore becomes Rotherham's third signing since the turn of the year and follows his Posh team-mate Lee Frecklington and on loan Liverpool striker Adam Morgan to the New York Stadium.

"Back in 2011 I tried to convince the boy to sign for my previous club, but at that time he decided to sign for Peterborough United," Millers' delighted manager Steve Evans told Rotherham's official website.

"He has developed under Darren Ferguson and the Republic of Ireland Under 21 international is a real capture for us," he continued. "Sadly, I am not at liberty to reveal the League One and League Two clubs who have sought his signature in the last two weeks."
