The 28-year-old left Carlisle earlier this month at the end of his contract and pens a deal that will keep him at New York Stadium until 2015.

Collin, who began his career at Newcastle, rejected a move to an SPL club in favour of the South Yorkshire club and he is excited about the potential at the Millers.

"There was a bit of interest from League One and the SPL but I've chosen to come here because it's a club on the up with a great set-up at the training ground and the stadium," he said.

"The location and the fanbase are excellent."

Millers boss Steve Evans, who added Richard Brindley to his squad earlier on Thursday, added: "A lot of the success they (Carlisle) had in recent years was down to the big man's form.

"We identified him in February as a potential target, and there was interest from two established League One clubs.

"He's 6ft 4in, kicks it well, he's strong and has a big presence and has a real pedigree of course being from Newcastle United."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
