Football: Billy Knott joins Rochdale on loan

Date published: 11 January 2018

Billy Knott has signed for Rochdale on loan from Lincoln City until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old said: "I am buzzing, to be honest,.

“I have seen the way the gaffer [Dale manager Keith Hill] plays football, his style of play, and it suits me. I trained today and really enjoyed it.

“The boys are full of confidence and it was a really good standard. It was nice and enjoyable.

“My last few moves probably have nott been to passing teams, so I am like a little kid again and I can not wait to get passing the ball, moving it quickly and making movements off the ball. I am looking forward to it.”

Knott will wear squad number 30.

The move is subject to confirmation from the EFL.
