Rhys Norrington-Davies Joins Rochdale On A Season-Long Loan From Sheffield United

2 July 2019

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Rhys Norrington-Davies from Premier League side Sheffield United.

The 20-year-old highly-rated left-back has today completed his move to Rochdale on a season-long loan.

Norrington-Davies started his career at Swansea City before joining the Blades in the summer of 2017.

The Wales Under-21 international spent the 2018/19 campaign out on loan at Barrow, notching up 28 appearances for the Bluebirds.

After putting pen to paper, he said: “It has been a long process to get to this point, but now that it has been confirmed, I’m delighted.

“I’m really pleased that it’s a season-long loan.

“The lads are a great bunch, as is the Gaffer. I’ve had a couple of training sessions with the squad now and I know what it’s about and what the Gaffer wants from me.”

Manager Brian Barry-Murphy added: “The left-back position has been a priority this summer. We felt that while we develop our own younger left-backs within the club, it was imperative that we had a player who is capable of coming in and making us a stronger team. We feel as though Rhys is that player.

“Rhys is a player that we know very well and that we’ve monitored for a period of time. He is a very energetic and vibrant player. He’s got an appetite for the game, and he attacks and defends in equal level of intensity and focus. He brings something different to the squad and complements the other members of our squad.”
