Andy Liddell has been handed a one-year deal by Rotherham United after impressing the club during a short-term contract.
The 32-year-old winger, who originally joined Rotherham on a month-long deal, has come off the bench to make three appearances for the Millers this season.
His performances have been rewarded with an extended stay at Don Valley Stadium and Liddell has now set his sights on securing a place in the first-team.
"I have really enjoyed the month that I have had here and my main goal was to try and show the manager and his staff that I was worth a longer contract," he told Rotherham's official website.
"Now that I have signed my next aim is to show that I am worth a place in the team on a regular basis."
Liddell admitted that he was not in prime condition when he first joined but is gradually working his way up to full match fitness.
"I was behind the rest of the squad in terms of fitness, but now I have caught up a little," he added.
"I played in a reserve game (and) I have been coming of the bench for 10-20 minutes, which has been an enormous help.
"I am grateful for the opportunity and I am determined to show that I can still play football and help the club achieve its goals for the season."
