Rotherham get Jake Forster-Caskey on season-long loan

Rotherham have signed Jake Forster-Caskey on a season-long loan from Brighton.

The Millers were interested in bringing the former England Under-21 international to the club on a permanent deal but after being unable to get that over the line, they have now bagged him for the entire 2016-17 campaign.

The 22-year-old, who has one year left to run on his contract at the Amex Stadium, has been told he has no hope of first-team action by Chris Hughton, with the move effectively ending his Seagulls career.

The Millers were in talks over a three-year deal for Forster-Caskey but that hit a stumbling block after the midfielder was unsure of a move away from his south coast roots.

However, he has had second thoughts and will train with his new team-mates on Wednesday and hope to be involved in Saturday’s friendly with Sunderland.

Boss Alan Stubbs said of his third summer signing: “Jake is a very talented footballer.

“He is one we have been trying to get done for a number of weeks now. It has took a little bit of time but I am pleased that we have managed to eventually get it over the line.”
