Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has joined Rotherham United on a season-long loan deal.
It will be the 22-year-old’s third loan spell since breaking into the Albion first team, following two separate temporary moves to MK Dons last season.
The terms of the deal mean the midfielder won't be eligible to play against Albion when the two sides meet in the Championship on 16th August and 7th March respectively.

Manager Chris Hughton commented, “With increasing competition in the midfield areas, Jake knows it will be difficult to get the number of games he would want.
“After two successful loan periods with MK Dons last season, an opportunity has arisen for Jake to gain regular Championship football again, which benefits all three parties.
“We will closely monitor Jake’s progress while he is there and hope that he continues his development throughout the season.”
Forster-Caskey made his Albion first-team debut at the end of the 2009/10 season aged just 16 – at the time becoming the club's youngest-ever player – going on to make 82 appearances in total and scoring nine times.
The England under-21 international will be eligible to feature for Alan Stubbs’s side when they play Premier League side Sunderland on Saturday.
