Florian Jozefzoon will likely be very happy with his decision to join Rotherham United on loan in the summer window.
The 29-year-old appears to have cemented his place in the Millers starting XI and has avoided the dismal start to the season at Derby County, with his parent club bottom of the Championship.
With Phillip Cocu gone and a £60 million takeover expected to be completed soon there is both optimism and uncertainty for Derby looking ahead, but where does that leave Jozefzoon?
The winger joined Rotherham on a season-long loan ahead of the October transfer deadline and with his contract set to expire in the summer, it seems as though the Dutchman may have played his last game for Rams.
It’s unclear whether the new Derby manager could recall the 29-year-old but the East Midlands club could offer him a new deal, though that looks unlikely given the recent arrivals of Kamil Jozwiak and Jordan Ibe.
You’d imagine that Jozefzoon would need to be pulling up trees at Rotherham to convince whoever takes charge at Pride Park that he’s worth bringing back or handing a new contract.

He hasn’t done that quite yet. The 29-year-old has quickly won the faith of Paul Warne and become a mainstay in the starting XI but he’s not shown the quality in the final third that saw him turn heads with Brentford back in 2017/18.
So far, the Ajax academy product is yet to find the net and has provided one assist for the Yorkshire club, while he is averaging 0.6 key passes per game – putting him joint sixth in the squad in that category (Whoscored).
Things could change once a new manager takes charge of Derby but the chances of Jozefzoon reigniting his Rams career seem very slim.
