The 27-year-old has only taken in six appearances for Brighton, with the return of one goal, following his arrival in the January 2016 window from Dundalk, but he enjoyed an encouraging loan spell out at the New York Stadium in 2017/18 where he made 39 starting appearances for Rotherham.
He added six substitute showings to his season tally and he was largely very impressive for them, finding the back of the net six times.
He certainly played his part in helping the Miller’s to bounce back from relegation as they secured a return to the Championship under Paul Warne via the League One Play-Off route in 2017/18.
Speaking to the Official Site manager Chris Hughton said of the move.
“This loan move is another good opportunity for Richie to go out and play regularly in a highly-competitive Championship division. He had a very successful time with Rotherham last season, and this gives him an opportunity to return to a club he knows well. I would like to wish Richie all the very best of luck, and we will closely monitor his progress throughout the season.”
Good luck Richie!!
