Clarke, who can operate at left-back or in midfield, made his debut in the EFL Trophy game against Doncaster Rovers in October, scoring the winner. But the 23--year-old Dubliner failed to make himself a first-team regular.

The former Republic of Ireland Under 19 international, made eight league starts in his first season with the Millers and started nine Championship games last term.
