Newly-promoted Rotherham United have completed the signing of striker Matt Derbyshire.

The 28-year-old was released by Nottingham Forest at the end of the season, and the Millers have snapped up the forward on a two-year deal following their promotion to the Championship last week.

Manager Steve Evans told the club's official website: "I have watched Matt's career with real interest and excitement over the years and my attention intensified towards the end of last season when I was keeping an eye on his situation at Nottingham Forest.

"He is a goalscorer, he has pace, he can get in behind defences and he is comfortable taking the ball into feet. Quite simply he will be an excellent signing for us."

Derbyshire scored 10 goals in all competitions for Forest last season.
