Former Hartlepool United striker Richie Barker has completed a move to League Two side Rotherham.
The 33-year-old has been plying his trade at the Don Valley Stadium since the start of October, after a three-month loan deal was agreed.
His performances for the Millers have been good enough to win him a permanent deal with the South Yorkshire side, despite only scoring one goal in 14 appearances.
His full-time contract will last 18 months, securing his future with Rotherham until 2010.
This is Barker's second spell with the Millers, his last ending in 2004 following three years with the club during which time he scored 17 times.
