Rotherham United have appointed Nicky Eaden as their assistant manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal,

The 43-year-old replaces Eric Black who left for Premier League strugglers Aston Villa last week.

Eaden, who has recently been working with Leicester City's under-21s, played with Millers head coach Neil Redfearn at Barnsley.

"He is good at working with and developing players and that was key to bringing him here," Redfearn said.
