Born in Leeds, Rinomhota came to prominence with Reading, for whom he made more than 100 Championship starts.

He moved to second-tier Cardiff last season and made 41 appearances in his first year there. However, this term the Zimbabwe international has been limited to just seven outings.

His arrival is a welcome boost to the bottom-placed Millers' bid to secure a second successive Championship survival.
