Doncaster Rovers Sign Brighton & Hove Albion Winger on Loan

Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster Rovers have signed Todd Miller on loan from Premier League outfit Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 20-year-old joins for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign and will bid to help Rovers gain promotion back to League One.

Miller, a winger, was signed by Brighton after becoming the youngest Colchester United player to represent the club in March 2019 at 16 years and 166 days.

He arrives in Doncaster in search of more minutes at senior level.

Doncaster Rovers Make Loan Signing

Miller is the first signing of Doncaster’s January transfer window and will be a welcome addition to a thin squad as they look to challenge for promotion. Rovers currently sit in 10th, one point below the play-off places.

Todd Miller will look to strike a partnership with his namesake George Miller, who is Doncaster Rovers’ top goalscorer this season and top provider on the existing squad too after Kyle Knoyle’s departure for Stockport County earlier today.

Doncaster Rovers boss Danny Schofield, who was appointed in October, has his side in improved form lately – winning three of their last five.

This is the third time Rovers have dipped into the loan market this season after the summer signings of Josh Andrews and Max Woltman, though Andrews was sent back to Birmingham City earlier this month after missing a lengthy spell out injured.

Miller has scored four goals for Brighton’s U21s this season – including two in two EFL Trophy games against senior opposition in Gillingham and Charlton Athletic.

Todd Miller Looking to Bring Different Dynamic to Danny Schofield’s Side

On joining Rovers, Miller told doncasterroversfc.co.uk: “I’m really excited. It’s been in the mix for a few days so I’m delighted to get it done and I can’t wait to get out on the grass and show what I can do.

“I heard of the interest before Christmas but I focused on carrying on putting performances in for Brighton and now we’re here.

“I bring pace in behind, stretching the play and I love one-v-one battles. I want to get on the ball and express myself.

“I feel that I’ve been brought in to bring a different dynamic. There’s a lot of quality in the team and I’ve got to try to take a shirt. I need to make an impact and hopefully I can do that.”

Head coach Danny Schofield added: “Todd’s a player that we’ve been watching for a while and we feel that he’s got really good attacking qualities and strengths that he can add to the squad.

“He’s got good speed, can make good runs in behind and has good finishing ability so we’re pleased to have him on board.

“He’s at that stage of his career where he wants to compete and there’s no better platform to do that in than the EFL. He’s ready and I hope he can hit the ground running.

“He’ll have the opportunity and we’ll see where he goes with it.”

The winger is available for Doncaster’s trip to Crawley Town on Saturday, January 14.
