Rotherham United have confirmed the signing of Hamilton Academical midfielder Hakeem Odoffin, who has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the Yorkshire club.
The 23-year-old’s move, which is still subject to EFL ratification and international clearance, sees him arrive back to the south of the border since his 2019 move to Livingston.
The towering midfielder joins The Millers for an undisclosed fee after they saw several bids rejected from the Scottish club.
Odoffin was born in North London, spending time at the academies of Tottenham Hotspur and Reading, before graduating through at Barnet.
In 2016, he departed The Bees for Wolverhampton Wanderers, but after two years with no appearances and a loan spell out with Eastleigh, Odoffin joined Northampton Town.
He managed to make 12 appearances for The Cobblers in League Two, but swapped England’s fourth-tier with Scotland’s first, and arrived in Livingston in January 2019.
Quiz: What was the score the last time Rotherham United played at each of these 24 stadiums?
Odoffin found first-team opportunities quite hard to come by in 18 months with the Scottish club and joined Hamilton last summer.
He made 37 appearances in all competitions last season for The Accies, scoring three times in the process – his first season of regular first-team action
Here, we take a look at how some Rotherham fans have reacted to the arrival of Hakeem Odoffin…

I like this signing. We had virtually no one who could play that solid defensive role in the middle of the park. Hope he gets to play there.
