Rotherham United completed the signing of defender Ben Purrington from Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed fee in January 2017.

The left-back has agreed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Millers after leaving Home Park for the first time in his career.

The 20-year-old attracted the attention of the Millers after showing some sparkling form for high-flying Plymouth during the 2016/17 campaign, helping them into the automatic promotion places in League Two.

The Exeter-born ace broke into the Plymouth first-team at the back end of the 2013/14 season, before going on to make 14 appearances.

Over the next two seasons he became a regular operator for the Pilgrims as he established himself as the number one left-back, whilst also deputising in central midfield on occasions.

He played for the Millers in The Championship during the 2016/17 season, making 10 appearances in his debut season.
