Rotherham United completed the loan signing of Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Richie Towell, just minutes before the closure of the transfer window.

The Irishman penned a loan deal until the end of the 2017/18 season.

The former Republic of Ireland U21 international, who started his career at Celtic, signed a new deal with the Premier League newcomers at the end of last season, but joined the Millers looking for regular first-team football.

After leaving Celtic as a youngster following a loan spell with Hibernian, the 26-year-old enjoyed tremendous success back in his native Ireland.

He signed for Dundalk, helping them to back-to-back titles, with his impressive goal ratio alerting a number of top clubs, before he decided to join Brighton.
