Michael Ihiekwe is hoping for regular football after joining Accrington on loan from Rotherham.

The 25-year-old, who can operate in central defence or at left-back, has joined the League One club until January.

He told Stanley’s official website: ‘I am delighted to be here, Accrington have obviously had a successful few years and I can’t wait to get started.

‘I wanted to play regularly and was pleased when Accrington came in from me.’

Manager John Coleman added: ‘I first came across Michael when he was playing for Tranmere and he impressed me. We need to strengthen in the defensive area and Michael ticks all the boxes.’

Ihiekwe is available for Accrington’s clash with Blackpool on Saturday.
