Rotherham have signed former England U21 goalkeeper Lee Camp following his release from Bournemouth.
The 31-year-old, who switched allegiance to Northern Ireland in 2011, has penned a two-year deal at New York Stadium and is likely to become manager Steve Evans' first-choice stopper.
Evans said: "I am delighted that we have been able to secure the services of such an experienced Championship goalkeeper.
"The lad played against the Millers on three occasions last season and our supporters will have seen first hand the qualities he possesses.
"Lee had a number of options presented to him from other Championship clubs, but after much consideration he has decided his future lies at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
"I will add nothing else other than to say he now competes with Adam Collin to start in goal for Rotherham United. It goes without saying we all wish the lad every success."
Camp's arrival in South Yorkshire sees on-loan goalkeeper Kelle Roos return to parent club Derby.
Roos made four appearances for the Millers but his time in the side was error-strewn and he was replaced by Collin for the Millers' last two games.
"As soon as I became aware that there was a possibility of bringing Lee Camp to Rotherham United I immediately spoke with my counterpart at Derby County regarding the possibility of young Kelle being recalled back to the iPro Stadium," Evans added.
"I must thank Paul Clement for his full understanding in the matter and we all wish young Kelle a bright and successful future. He is young, talented and it has to be said he has conducted himself in the most exemplary fashion during his time with the club."
