Former Dundalk FC star Towell re-joins Rotherham United on-loan

Former Dundalk FC star Richie Towell has re-joined Rotherham United on a season-long loan deal.

The Brighton & Hove Albion player spent last season with the Millers, helping them to League One play-off glory at Wembley in May, and returns ahead of this evening's loan deadline.

Towell was hugely influential for Paul Warne's charges last term, netting six goals in 45 appearances, including winning their goal of the season award for his strike against Northampton Town.

The 26-year-old is currently awaiting clearance, but could be involved in tomorrow's league game against fellow promoted Wigan Athletic.

Rotherham currently sit 15th in the Championship having won two of their opening five matches.
