Former Reading, Millwall and Rotherham United right back Shaun Cummings has joined League One side Doncaster Rovers, the club announced on Wednesday evening.

Defender Shaun Cummings has joined Doncaster Rovers on a free transfer, after his release from Rotherham United at the end of last season, The Deal will only run through to January, after the 29-year-old penned a two month contract at the Keepmoat Stadium.

The defender has been on trial with Doncaster Rovers, training with the League One side whilst searching for a new club to join. He featured in an Under-23s game against Sheffield United last week, and comes in to provide some defensive reinforcements for manager Grant McCann.

Cummings started his career at Premier League giants, joining at the age of 13. However, he left Stamford Bridge without making a single senior appearances for The Blues. He spent two seasons on loan away from Chelsea, playing 33 times for Milton Keynes Dons and three times for West Bromwich Albion in 2009.

After his departure from Chelsea, Cummings joined Reading, where he went on to spend six years. He made 86 appearances for The Royals, with nine of those coming in the Premier League. He left Reading for Millwall in January 2015, where he was relegated in his first season at The Den, but helped them on a historic FA Cup run, beating Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester City in the 2016/17 campaign.

The defender left Millwall upon their promotion to the Championship, joining League One side Rotherham United, where he only featured 15 times before being released at the end of the season.

He now joins up with Grant McCann’s Doncaster Rovers, as they look to amend their poor recent form to help themselves back up the table.
