Brighton forward Todd Miller joins on loan

13 January 2023

Rovers are delighted to announce the signing of winger Todd Miller on loan from Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 20-year-old came through the ranks at Colchester United, and became their youngest ever player when he came on as a substitute against Exeter City in Sky Bet League Two in March 2019 aged 16 years and 166 days.

He had a goal disallowed that day and his progress continued with the U’s, before Brighton signed him that summer.

Miller has featured for the Seagulls’ U23s since arriving at the AMEX, including outings in the Papa John’s Trophy.

He played in two group games this season, scoring against both Gillingham and Charlton Athletic in the competition.

Miller becomes Rovers’ first signing of the January transfer window, and could go into the squad for the game against Crawley Town this weekend.

After putting pen to paper on his deal at the Eco-Power Stadium, Miller said: “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.”

Rovers head coach Danny Schofield said: “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.”

Miller will wear the number 20 shirt during his time with the club.
