Brooke Norton-Cuffy has joined Rotherham United on loan after Preston North End pulled out of the race.
Preston North End were one of the clubs also linked with a move for the Arsenal youngster, but LancsLive reported a few days ago that that move was off.
Rotherham recently lost Peter Kioso to a 10-week groin injury, and their manager confirmed they planned to strengthen at right-wing-back, hence their move for Norton-Cuffy.
“Of course, you have your plans but then you also need to be flexible because on average I’ll take about 50 to 100 calls a day, half of which were probably unscheduled,” Norton-Cuffy’s agent Alan Redmond said last week.
“In terms of a solid example, we have Brooke Norton-Cuffy who has just signed a new contract at Arsenal, and there are about seven Championship clubs looking to take him on loan.
“Four of them probably think they are in a good position to land him – but only one can.”
Norton-Cuffy had a very strong first loan spell in senior football last season, joining Lincoln City in League One. He made 17 appearances in a few months with the side and earned plenty of praise.
A step up to the Championship is the logical next step.
