Martin Woods has signed a two-year contract with Rotherham after impressing on trial.
Martin Woods has signed a two-year contract with Rotherham United after impressing on trial.
The midfielder was released by Sunderland at the end of last season after starting just one game in The Premiership.
Woods had only spent the one campaign at The Stadium of Light, having joined on a free transfer from Leeds United.
He has now completed a return to Yorkshire after the 20-year-old accepted a contract offer from the League One side.
Millers boss Alan Knill feels Woods' capture is further vindication of the policy he has adopted in the transfer market over the summer.
"We tried to target a certain age group," said Knill.
"We could have had the 30-somethings that have been around and played a lot, but I decided I wanted a young tam and we think we've got that.
"The majority are ex-Championship players and they want to get back there as quickly as possible and we'll give them that vehicle to get back there."
