Purrington Joins Rotherham

Purrington Joins Rotherham

Argyle left-back Ben Purrington has signed for Rotherham United.

The 20-year old today put pen to paper on a three and a half year deal for the Championship strugglers.

Purrington progressed through the Argyle youth system and made his debut in December 2013 and has gone on to make 64 appearances for the Greens.

Rotherham are bottom of the Championship, eleven points from safety, have a caretaker manager and look to be doomed to relegation into League One, so with that in mind it appears to be a strange move for Purrington.

The transfer fee is rumoured to be £300,000 so it represents a good deal for Argyle for a player who wanted to leave.

Good luck Ben, see you next season in League One.
