Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe has decided to return to Norwich at the end of his one month loan at Rotherham, rather than extend the deal.
Rotherham have announced that despite the club wanting to extend the loan, the player wanted to return to Norwich and fight for his place in the Premier League.
Vadis made four appearances for The Millers, scoring one goal and was seen as a big reason for Rotherhams’s up-turn in form as Vadis played his part in two wins and a draw that helped take The Millers off the bottom of the table.
Surprisingly, Steve Evans left his job as manager at the start of the week just 48hrs after Rotherham had defeated Birmingham 2-0 on Saturday (Tony Andreu scored, by the way). Evans said that ‘There were differences of opinion as to where the club was going.’
Vadis had spoken in positive terms about Evans just last week and I wonder if his decision to return to Norwich was partly prompted by Evans leaving?
Millers caretaker manager Eric Black told www.themillers.co.uk:
“Vadis expressed his desire to return to Norwich City following the conclusion of his loan which is a decision we fully respect. We would like to thank him for his contribution whilst with Rotherham United and wish him well for the rest of the season. ‘
Either way, Vadis has plenty to offer and is another option for Alex Neil to use, especially after such a positive loan spell.
