Miller Signs For Terriers

Ismael Miller

Ismael Miller is Huddersfield Town's only signing on transfer deadline day.

Huddersfield Town have completed the signing of striker Ishmael Miller from fellow Championship side Blackpool.

The 27-year-old put pen to paper on a short-term contract on deadline day that runs until the end of the current 2014/15 campaign, with Town having an option on a further season.

Ishmael arrives having played exclusively at Premier League and Championship level throughout his career, making over 200 appearances and scoring 44 goals.

Huddersfield Town manager Chris Powell said: “Since the start of January, I’ve made no secret of the fact that I wanted to supplement our forward options. Although I was comfortable extending our search into the upcoming loan window, I’m happy that we’ve managed to bring Ishmael in ahead of tonight’s transfer deadline.

“I talked about the need for the incoming player to have Championship know-how and Ishmael certainly fits that bill. He’s stands at an imposing 6’ 3” tall and is a powerful player; I believe he will complement James Vaughan and Nahki Wells and the likes of Harry Bunn and Sean Scannell.

“Having started his career at Manchester City, he is very well known to both Steve Eyre and Frankie Bunn. They’ve played a key part in his development and early professional career, and they’ve both given him good references as a footballer and as an individual.

“Now the ball is in Ishmael’s court; it’s down to him to do well for the club and see if he can earn a longer-term deal. He’s a talented lad who has commanded millions of pounds in transfer fees during his career. At aged 27 he has a lot to offer.”
