Sean Raggett joins Rotherham on loan

24 July 2018

Norwich City defender Sean Raggett has joined Rotherham United on a season-long loan deal.

Raggett, 24, joined City in August last year from Lincoln City but he was loaned back to the Imps for the first part of the 2017-18 season.

He then returned to the Canaries during the winter transfer window and made his debut in City's 1-0 victory over Bristol City at Ashton Gate on January 13.

He is due to be with Rotherham for whole of the 2018-19 campaign, however, there is an option for him to return to the Canaries in January.

Head Coach Daniel Farke said: "After the training sessions and the friendly games in this pre-season, we had to consider that Grant [Hanley], Timm [Klose] and Zimbo [Christoph Zimmermann] are, at the moment, a step above Sean.

"I was pretty pleased with Ben Godfrey at centre-back, especially against Union Berlin, and Alex Tettey can also play in this role.

"Sean is not 18 or 19 anymore. He needs game-time and we've found a solution that he's able to play at our level and with a club which doesn't neccessarily have as much competition in the centre-back position.

"Hopefully he can play a lot of games and come back at the level of Grant, Timm, Christoph and Ben and I wish him all the best."

Everyone at Norwich City would like to wish Sean a successful loan spell with the Millers.
