The 32 year-old was released by Wednesday when his contract expired in June and Town appeared to have won the race for the midfielder despite interest from teams in both League One and Two. Clubs rumoured to be interested were his former club Hartlepool United, Bradford City and Gateshead.

Born in Shotton Colliery, Miller was released by Ipswich Town at the age of 15 in 1994 but was quickly taken on by Hartlepool United and broke into Hartlepool's first team in 1997. He went on to make 160 appearances scoring 44 goals before returning to Ipswich in 2001 for £750,000.

Miller spent four years at Portman Road scoring 29 goals in 117 appearances which included 15 in a single season during the 2004/05 season.

He left Ipswich for Sunderland in the summer of 2005 lasting two years at the Stadium of Light which included a loan spell at Preston North End before returning to Ipswich again in 2007 after being released by Sunderland.

In his second spell at Portman Road Miller managed 10 goals in 69 appearances in a two-year spell before being released in the summer of 2009.

A two-year stint at Sheffield Wednesday followed, scoring 10 goals in 54 appearances during his time at Hillsborough. His contract was not renewed and he left Wednesday in June along with Richard Hinds.

Miller is eligible to play for Scotland and was included in the squad to face Wales in a friendly at the end of the 2004/05 season but didn't make an appearance due to a injury.
