Rotherham United have completed the signing of Anthony Wordsworth on a ‘long-term loan’ from Ipswich Town.

Millers boss Steve Evans told the club’s official website: “I am delighted that we have been able to bring Anthony Wordsworth to New York Stadium.

“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.”

Wordsworth was yesterday transfer listed at Ipswich after falling out of favour with boss Mick McCarthy.

The 25-year-old joined Ipswich in January 2013 from Colchester for £100,000 but failed to make a lasting impression, making just 20 appearances.

Wordsworth started his career with Colchester, making 199 appearances and scoring 35 goals.
