Rotherham United left it late to make three signings from Premier League clubs on transfer deadline day

The club announced the capture of former Bournemouth goalkeeper Lee Camp after the 6pm deadline, when most fans were fearing no business had been done.

And they followed that up with loan deals for Norwich City pair midfielder Tony Andreu and winger Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe.

Both played against the Millers in the Capital One Cup last week, with Odjidja-Ofoe looking particularly dangerous.

“Both lads have been on my radar for some time and I am delighted that, despite a lot of other interest in securing them, we have brought them to Rotherham United,” manager Steve Evans said.

“Tony Andreu is a very talented player, one who has a superb goalscoring record.

“Vadis is an exciting talent and a player we look forward to working with. He is a full Belgian international."

Andreu is 27 and French while Odjidja-Ofoe is 26.

The Star understands 31-year-old shot-stopper Camp has signed a two-year deal at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Loan keeper Kelle Roos has returned early to parent club Derby County as a result of the deal.

“I am delighted that we have been able to secure the services of such an experienced Championship goalkeeper," boss Steve Evans said.

"Lee had a number of options presented to him from other Championship clubs, but after much consideration he has decided that his future lies at New York.

"We all wish young Kelle a bright and successful future."

Camp started out at Derby, played close to 200 matches for Nottingham Forest and featured 13 times for Bournemouth last season including in all three games against the Millers.

He was unattached after the Premier League Cherries agreed to release him.
