Rotherham United are being linked with a loan move for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Richie Towell, as per a report by the Yorkshire Post.

The Millers are keen to delve into the loan market, which shuts at the end of August, and bring the Irishman back to the New York Stadium.

The 27-year-old spent last season on loan with the Millers in League One and was impressive. Towell played 45 games in all competitions and scored 6 goals.

It appears that Towell does not have a future at Brighton in the top flight and could be allowed to leave them again this month.

The Seagulls swooped to sign him in November 2015 from Dundalk but he has struggled to break into their first-team since moving to England. He has played only eight times for Brighton.

Towell, who is a former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, started his career at Crumlin United before being snapped up by Celtic in 2007. He spent the 2010/11 season on loan at Hibernian before leaving Celtic to join Dundalk.

He was prolific for Dundalk and scored 51 goals for them in 118 which helped them win the League of Ireland Premier Division twice. This earned him a move to Brighton but it seems his future lies away from them.

Richie Towell found his feet at Rotherham United last season and Paul Warne got the best out of him. A return to the Millers would be a sensible move for the Irish midfielder.
