Andrew Shinnie joins Rotherham United on loan

Andrew Shinnie makes a loan switch from Birmingham City to Championship strugglers Rotherham United until the end of the season.

Birmingham City midfielder Andrew Shinnie has joined Rotherham United on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old, who recently signed a new deal keeping him with the Midlands side until 2018, joins the Millers as they fight for Championship survival in the second half of the campaign.

Birmingham will not have the ability to recall Shinnie during the loan spell but he will be ineligible to face his parent side at the New York Stadium on February 13.

"Andrew is another terrific attacking option," manager Neil Redfearn told the club's official website. "He is someone who can play just off the front or just in behind the front. He is a real creative talent and he will give us more strings to our bow.

"He understands his position, he has played at this level for a while now and he has done well for Birmingham.

"I think that he is a player that, on his day, can unlock the best defences in this division. He will be a really good acquisition for us."

Rotherham are currently 21st in the table, just one point clear of the relegation places.
