ROTHERHAM United have landed their first signing of the January transfer window, bringing in striker Michael Smith from Bury for an undisclosed fee.
Standing 6ft 4in, the 26-year-pld has played for Charlton, Swindon and Portsmouth. He also had loan spells at Colchester, Barnsley and Northampton before joining Bury on a two-year contract only last summer.
Supporters at AESSEAL New York Stadium have seen Smith in action this season when he was introduced as a second-half substitute in the home clash with the Shakers back in September last year.
Manager Paul Warne told the Advertiser: "When Michael came on as a substitute at our place it was a different game. He caused us no end of problems and took the centre-halves where they didn't want to go.
"He's mobile, he's game and that's crucial for me because I need my centre-forwards to be able to put a shift in and he's a pretty good age."
Smith is expected to be available for selection for Saturday's trip to Oldham.
