Rotherham United have signed Ipswich midfielder Anthony Wordsworth on a long-term loan.

The 25-year-old former Colchester man becomes the Millers' second signing this week following the arrival of Richie Smallwood from Middlesbrough.

"I am delighted that we have been able to bring Anthony Wordsworth to New York Stadium," boss Steve Evans told the club's official website.

"He was a lad that we tried to sign on a few occasions last season but on every occasion we got close he was then back in Mick McCarthy's first team so it never became a reality.

"The lad will bring a nice balance to our midfield area, he is naturally left sided with a sweet left peg and can play on the left or centrally should the need arise."
