MORECAMBE left back Laurence Wilson will join fellow League 2 side Rotherham United when his Shrimps contract expires on July 1.

The 25-year-old has signed a one-year deal to become Steve Evans’ ninth signing of the summer for the much-fancied Millers.

Wilson, who missed the last few weeks of the season with a fractured knee cap, told Shrimps boss Jim Bentley back in April that he wanted to leave the club for a new challenge.

Bentley has already replaced the former Chester man having signed former Bradford left back Robbie Threlfall last month.
