The 27-year-old signs as a free agent, after a decade at Blackburn Rovers.

“I’ve been a huge admirer of Darragh for a long time,” says Boro boss Chris Wilder, “in terms of his qualities he brings as a player, as a person, as a competitor, as a warrior, and a leader of men.

“I’m putting a bit on him but I know he can handle it. He’s a proper football player and I’m delighted.

The north-east side finished just outside the play-off spots in seventh position last term.
