Former Oldham Athletic loanee Daniel Iverson is looking to have another successful loan spell, this time with Rotherham Utd.
Last season, Leicester City’s 22-year-old goalkeeper enjoyed a loan spell in League Two with Oldham Athletic. The Dane kept 16 clean sheets in 49 games in all competitions for the Latics and will take a step up to League One to lend his services to Rotherham for one season.
Rotherham found themselves relegated to the third tier upon Iverson’s return to Leicester, and could see some major development as he aims to help the side return to the Championship.
Here are two things that the League One side will be getting from Iverson this season…
Up for the challenge
In an interview with his new club, Iverson said: “I played in League Two last year and I think it’s a good match for me to come to League One now and show what I can do”.
After 16 clean sheets with Oldham, Iverson will be looking to do better. Having a first-team keeper alongside a youngster itching to prove himself, it can’t do any harm to their challenge for promotion.
Leicester City has retained this goalkeeper since he joined in 2016, meaning that a top-flight club believes in his abilities.
For club and country
Iverson made 3 appearances for his country this summer’s in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship. However, he will be looking to be in the books for the International side in future as well.
With two celebrated teams backing him (Leicester and Denmark) after a successful season in League Two. His talents should be able to see Rotherham have an even more successful season with him in the ranks.
Iverson could be a regular fixture in the future of Leicester City, and successful seasons with Oldham and Rotherham could be a big part of his story in getting there.
