ROTHERHAM UNITED have made their first capture of the January transfer window after signing midfielder Matt Crooks from Northampton Town for an undisclosed fee.

The Leeds-born player, a target for the Millers last summer, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal and adds a much-needed fresh option in the middle of the park following Ryan Manning’s loan return to Queen’s Park Rangers.

Crooks, who turns 25 later this month, started his career as a trainee at Huddersfield Town and has also had permanent spells at Accrington and Glasgow Rangers, briefly.

The Yorkshireman has netted six times for the Cobblers this term, including a hat-trick in the 5-0 win at Macclesfield in October and has enjoyed a productive season at Sixfield
