He also won the 2019 EFL Community Player of the Year award, two club Community Player of the Year awards and the 2017/18 Player of the Year award.

Millers manager Paul Warne said: “Will leaves Rotherham United having made a huge contribution both on and off the field.

“He has become a very popular figure at the club and within the local community. He has epitomised everything about how I wanted Rotherham United to play during my time as manager, and has been a joy to coach.

“He has given me 100% week in, week out and thoroughly deserves his opportunity to play in The Championship. His rise from non-league to where he is today says everything about the guy and his desire to succeed. He is a shining example to any young pro. His day-to-day attitude has been first class, and we wish him all the best at Cardiff where I’m sure he’ll be a huge success under Neil and his staff.”
