Striker Kyle Vassell has become Rotherham United's second signing of the summer after his switch from Blackpool on a three-year deal.

The 25-year-old's arrival came on the heels of Seasiders team mate Clark Roberton also joining the Millers on Friday afternoon.

Frontman Vassell, 25, began his career with Norwich City before being signed by Brentford aged 15.

He went on to feature for nine different Conference clubs before his goalscoring exploits led him to be signed by Peterborough United in 2013 on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Loan spells with Oxford United, Dagenham and Redbridge and Shrewsbury Town followed, before he agreed a one-year-deal with Blackpool in 2016. That was extended by a year last season.

Last season Vassell scored eight goals in 20 league appearances, with 11 goals in 34 league outings the previous campaign.

The club return to pre-season training on Monday and both Vassell and Robertson are also expected to join up with the rest of Warne’s squad for their pending week-long Austrian training camp (July 8-15).
