Rotherham United have completed the permanent signing of Swansea City’s Alex Bray, as announced on the club’s official website.

The 21-year-old made five appearances for Swansea City’s U23s this term in the EFL Trophy before signing on loan for the Millers in January. Now, Bray’s move has been made permanent with an undisclosed fee, subject to FA, EFL and Premier League ratification and international clearance.

The youngster has agreed terms on a two-year contract which will run until the summer of 2019. Bray was delighted to make his move to South Yorkshire permanent, “I’m really really happy and it this stage of my career this is where I want to push on and get men’s football week-in week-out.

“I think here is the perfect opportunity to do that and being here on loan already means that I’m already settled in. I know all the lads and I can’t wait to get started.

“I think all the lads here are top lads. I’ve settled in really nicely and me and Ben have got to know the area quite well. The manager and staff have made me welcome and I’m really pleased to be joining.

“I think the manager must have seen enough of me to offer me the chance to come here permanently,” he added.

“Hopefully he knows what I can do for the club and I’m ready whenever he is, but it’s up to him when I’m selected.”

After making his debut in January’s 1-0 loss to Barnsley, Bray has been a regular in the match day squad and will be looking to cement a first-team spot upon his transfer. Rotherham United are bottom on the Championship and face a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend.
