Midfielder Alex Bray has become Forest Green Rovers 10th signing of the January transfer window after joining on loan from League One side Rotherham United.

The 22-year-old joins FGR on a deal until the end of the season in search of more game time having returned from injury.

Bray, who has experience of playing in the Championship with the Millers, has been restricted to Checkatrade Trophy appearances so far this campaign and is looking to prove that he is fit and ready to fight for a starting place with Rovers.

“It’s another challenge in my career and it’s really positive for me,” he said.

“I’ll hopefully get game time, that’s what I want and to keep us in the Football League.

“I got the phone call from my gaffer at Rotherham, Paul Warne, and he told me Forest Green were interested and I jumped at the chance.

“Coming back from a bit of an injury, I just want to play men’s football and prove myself.

“This season, I haven’t had much luck. I’ve been injured twice and been out for two or three months but I’m back fit and raring to go.

“I like to think of myself as quite direct, technical, quick and I like to keep the fans on their feet.”

Bray joined the Millers on a loan deal from Premier League side Swansea City until the end of the 2016/17 season during the last January transfer window.

The Bath-born player, who has family in Chippenham, made his debut for the Millers as a substitute in their Championship home defeat to Barnsley.

Bray, who also had a spell at Plymouth Argyle on loan where he sustained an injury on debut ending his stay with the Pilgrims, signed a permanent deal with Rotherham last July for an undisclosed fee.

“Alex can play both sides of the forward and can probably play at either wing-back as well,” he added.

“He gives us a bit of versatility and makes sure we have enough numbers going forward.

“He is very quick and tenacious and I’m pleased to be able to add him to the squad.

“You need to have players to add competition to the squad and if players get injured or suspended, we’ve got to make sure we’ve got quality to go into the team.”

Bray will be watching tonight’s game with Exeter City from the stands and will be available for Saturday’s home League Two game with Coventry City.
