Rotherham have signed former Aldershot striker Danny Hylton on a two-year contract, with an option for a further 12 months, BBC Radio Sheffield reports.

The 24-year-old scored 12 goals in 32 games for Aldershot last season but was made redundant last month after the club went into administration.

"He's an exceptional young player who hasn't been lucky enough to play in a very good team.

"He's got a fantastic work ethic and he can get a goal," said boss Steve Evans.

Hylton, who was handed an eight-match ban in May 2012 after being found guilty of two charges of racial abuse, scored a hat-trick before being sent off against the Millers in the FA Cup last season.
