The former Leeds United striker, who had a spell on loan at the New York Stadium last season, has joined until the end of the season following a short spell training with the Millers.

Becchio returned to his native Argentina following his departure from Norwich City last year but was keen to earn a return to English football.

“I am delighted to come back here and I hope to help the team to move up the table,” Becchio said.
