Wood's previous deal was set to expire this summer, but his association with the Millers has now been extended for another year - with the Yorkshireman joining the club in the summer of 2014.

The lion-hearted defender has made 174 times appearances for the Millers, with his finest hour arriving when he scored both goals in the club's memorable League One Play-off Final triumph over Shrewsbury Town at Wembley in May, 2018.
