Former Pompey loanee Chris Maguire has joined Rotherham United after his three-year stay at Sheffield Wednesday came to an end.

Michael Appleton brought the 26-year-old forward to the Blues in 2012 and he went on to make 11 appearances and score three goals.

He is fondly remembered for his goal in the 2-2 south-coast derby draw with Southampton at St Mary’s.

Soon after Billy Sharp opened the scoring for the hosts, Maguire received a pass from Kelvin Etuhu on the edge of the box and smashed the ball past Kelvin Davis.

Maguire proved a popular figure at Wednesday, too, and played his best football last season under former Pompey assistant manager Stuart Gray, making 46 appearances and scoring eight goals.

However the Scotsman, who can play up front or on the right of midfield, has opted to link up with Rotherham – joining former Pompey team-mate Greg Halford at the New York Stadium.
