The 29-year-old former Barnsley, Blackpool and QPR forward has agreed a two-year deal with the Millers and will become manager Steve Evans' first signing at the club.

"Daniel is a gifted young man who I tried to sign for my previous club a couple of times," former Crawley boss Evans said. "We tried to sign him last summer, then made another attempt in the January window, but it didn't happen.

"We have tried our level best in the last week. We showed him around the stadium and spoke to the kid again at the weekend. We're really excited to be working with him because he's a talented boy."

Nardiello, who started his career at Manchester United, scored 24 goals in 77 appearances for Exeter after joining from Blackpool in the summer of 2010.

The former Wales international is expected to be the first of several new arrivals at Rotherham, who are scheduled to kick off the 2012/13 season at their new 12,000-seat New York Stadium.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
