Northampton Town have signed the Rotherham United attacker Mickel Miller on loan for the rest of the season.
The signature of the 25 year old who can play either as a striker or out wide, ends a long pursuit of the player for manager Keith Curle, who has been a keen admirer of Miller's capabilities.
Croydon born Miller started his career as a prolific goalscorer with Carshalton Athletic, where he also spent time in the V9 Jamie Vardy Academy before moving north of the border with Hamilton Academical. In a successful two and a half years in Scotland, Miller made 68 appearances, scoring nine times, which included finishing as Hamilton's top scorer in the 2018/19 Scottish Premiership season.
He moved to Rotherham United in the summer of 2020 and has made nine appearances in the Championship so far this season.
"Mickel is a player we have been tracking for some time and we are delighted to be able to bring him to the club," said manager Keith Curle.
"He has attributes that we think can improve us. He is a tricky player with a lot of pace who can play either wide or centrally. He is a goal threat himself and he is also a player who can create opportunities for others.
"He also works really hard when his team does not have the ball and that is something we demand of every player who represents Northampton Town.
"I like his attitude and his desire. He was willing to take the chance of moving up from London to Scotland early in his career to take the opportunity of joining Hamilton and that sort of character is something that appeals to me. We think he is an excellent fit for us."
