Rotherham United have made a double swoop for Richard Wood and Ryan Hall.

Former Sheffield Wednesday defender Wood played more than 20 times for Charlton Athletic last season.

The defender, 28, made his debut in 2003 and went on to make almost 200 appearances for the Owls before joining Coventry City.

Hall, a winger who made his name with Southend United, joins after finishing last season strongly with MK Dons.

He has also played for Leeds United on loan.

On wood, Millers manager Steve Evans said: “He is an experienced defender with many games behind him at this level who plays predominantly on the left-side of the central pairing, whilst he can also do a good job at left-back if called upon.

“He is extremely good at reading the game, his positional sense is very good and he has a very accomplished left foot.

“He can come out of defence with the ball at his feet and he can link the play, he has plenty of attributes and I think our fans will really take to him.”

On Hall, Evans added: “We know he has tremendous ability, those who remember his performance at MK Dons this season at New York will have seen that.

“He will arrive here and will work hard getting him extremely fit under the Paul Warne fitness camp, and if we get him in great shape we will have a tremendous player in Ryan Hall. He is another very exciting signing.”
