He is manager Paul Warne’s first summer recruit following Rotherham’s relegation from the Championship.
Ihiekwe made a total of 42 appearances for Rovers this season as they narrowly missed out on promotion from the Vanarama National League following a play-off final loss to Forest Green.
The Liverpool-born player started his professional career with Wolves and also had a loan spell with Cheltenham.
