Rotherham United are currently 23rd in the Championship

Championship strugglers Rotherham United have signed former Leeds United youth team captain Simon Lenighan.

The 21-year-old midfielder left the Elland Road side in the summer and has spent time with non-league sides Frickley and Harrogate.

Boss Neil Redfearn, who worked with Lenighan at Leeds, said: "He is 6 ft 3 ins, very athletic and a box-to-box type of player."

He could feature against Bristol City on Saturday.
