The 32-year-old, who has been without a club since his contract with Argentine side Club Atletico Belgrano expired last year, has been training with the Championship side for the last couple of weeks.

It will be Becchio’s second stint with the Millers, as he spent time on loan from Norwich City last season, scoring twice in five appearances.

The forward told the club’s website: “I’m delighted to come back here and I hope to help the team to move up the table.

“I started training with the team two weeks ago and I feel confident. I know the group and I know the manager so I can’t wait to play the first game now.

“I’m ready and I’ve been working hard at home in Mallorca. I’ve been working very hard for two months and I feel confident and strong and I just want to help the team. I’ve played for three or four years at this level so I think it’s going to be good.”

The Argentine moved to England in 2008 to join Leeds during their spell in League One, scoring 16 league goals in his first term, before helping the club secure promotion back to the Championship the following season.

Becchio, who worked with Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn while at Leeds, spent five years at Elland Road, scoring 19 goals in 31 appearances in the 2012-13 season before moving to Norwich midway through the campaign.
