Canaries on-loan youngster Rossi Jarvis says he is happy to spend the rest of the season helping Rotherham in their fight against relegation from League One.

Canaries on-loan youngster Rossi Jarvis says he is happy to spend the rest of the season helping Rotherham in their fight against relegation from League One.

Jarvis is on a one-month stint with the Millers and, after victories in two of his first four games, is hoping it will be extended after the Easter Monday trip to promotion hopefuls Nottingham Forest.

The chance of first-team football is clearly preferable to City's reserve team set-up.

"I want to play football," said the Fakenham-born 19-year-old, who has fellow City player Ian Henderson and ex-Canaries skipper Craig Fleming for company at Millmoor.

"Rotherham have given me the chance to do that and hopefully I can repay them.

"I'm only here for a month to start with, but if we carry on winning and Mark Robins likes me then hopefully I can stay until the end of the season."

Jarvis is enjoying life in a young Rotherham midfield where he has been given the chance to show of the talents which have made him a regular part of the England youth set-up.

"Look at our midfield against Blackpool on Tuesday, the oldest player was 21 (Martin Woods)," he said. "I think it's brilliant to give young English talent a chance to come through."

Rotherham were beaten 2-0 at home by Bournemouth on Saturday, leaving them second from bottom of the table.
