He played in the top flight for all three clubs but has spent most of his career in the Championship and once had a loan spell with Sheffield United.

He parted company with Nottingham Forest at the end of the season after three years and will be reunited with City Ground teammate Danny Collins who joined the Millers on Friday.

The 30-year-old is no stranger to AESSEAL New York Stadium, having played there in Brighton’s 1-0 Easter-Monday defeat while he was on loan with the Seagulls.

Millers manager Steve Evans’ other recruits are Tom Thorpe, Emmanuel Ledesma, Lewis Buxton, Joe Mattock and Aidy White.
