SIGNING | Millers land winger from Brentford

29 August 2019

Rotherham United are delighted to confirm the signing of Chiedozie Ogbene who joins from Championship Brentford for an undisclosed fee, subject to clearance from the EFL and the FA.

The 22-year-old winger has agreed a three-year deal at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, keeping him in South Yorkshire until at least 2022.

Born in Nigeria, Ogbene then moved to Ireland with his family aged eight. After representing Everton as a youth player, he signed for Cork City in August 2015 and he spent 18 months there, winning the FAI Senior Challenge Cup in 2016.

Limerick was his next destination and he was an ever-present during their 2017 League of Ireland Premier Division campaign, alerting interest from clubs in England, cue Brentford swooping to secure his services in January 2018.

The youngster found it difficult breaking into the Bees' first team and he spent half of last season on loan at Sky Bet League Two Exeter City before making a handful of appearances upon his return to Griffin Park.

He now joins Rotherham United with a desire to prove his worth in Sky Bet League One, and he is looking forward to working with Paul Warne and the rest of his staff.
