Confirmed: Recently released Leeds United star Aidy White joins Rotherham United

The left-sided operator has decided to keep it local with a move to Rotherham United.

Last month Leeds United revealed the names of those players who would be leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer.

One name that popped up was Aidan 'Aidy' White. The left-sided defender or midfielder has been granted a free transfer by Leeds, after spending the past 13 years with the club.

The Otley-born former Republic of Ireland under-21 international has of course had a miserable time with injuries recently. He has had multiple operations on a foot problem and played against Rotherham United on the final day of the season in what proved to be his last game for the club.

In a twist of irony White has now joined that very same team. Rotherham United have confirmed what has long been speculated in the rumour mill that White has joined the club for the upcoming Championship season.

White, who made his debut for Leeds aged 16, has joined the Yorkshire side, potentially as a replacement for Ben Pringle - who has left the New York Stadium on a free transfer this summer.

White, who was also linked with fellow Yorkshire clubs Sheffield United and Doncaster Rovers, will now hope to stay fit with The Millers and get his once promising career back on track.
