Huddersfield Town have signed Tommy Miller on a free transfer.

The 32-year-old midfielder was a free agent after he was released by Sheffield Wednesday and has agreed a one-year deal with Town.

Manager Lee Clark told the club's website  : "Tommy is a high-energy midfield player who has lots of experience at the highest level."

Miller had turned down a move to League Two side, and Yorkshire neighbours, Bradford City on Wednesday.

The former Ipswich and Sunderland man scored 11 goals in 41 appearances in League One for Wednesday last season and has made over 500 professional appearances during his career.

"As soon as we spoke to Tommy about a move, his desire to come to the club and prove himself was very evident," explained Clark.

"Understandably players are always after long-term contracts, but Tommy was more than happy to sign a one year deal and I'm delighted with that.

"He scored 11 goals last season without playing in every game so we know he offers us that, but the experience he brings to the midfield department is equally as important.

"We have signed some exciting young players, but we need that experience that Damien Johnson and latterly Kevin Kilbane offered us last season too and he fits that bill perfectly."
