Kieffer Moore talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
New signing Kieffer Moore has described his move to Rotherham United as potentially ‘the start of something special’.
The striker penned a season long loan with the Millers from Championship side Ipswich Town yesterday, and has joined up with Paul Warne’s side on their pre-season tour of Austria.
The 24-year-old looks set to play a part against Floridsdorfer this evening (7pm kick off local time), and admitted that his early impressions of the club have given him the belief that there are good times ahead.
"I am delighted to come here and play for Rotherham,” he told www.themillers.co.uk
“I think this could be the start of something really special coming here. I think the upcoming season is going to be a really good one for the club.
"This is the perfect move for me. I want to come out here and play, and try and get as many games and goals as I can. I believe at the moment I am hitting some of my best form. I have come into pre-season really fit and I am ready to go now.”
Moore, a former Yeovil and Forest Green front-man, was another of the new arrivals to cite boss Warne as a major influence in his decision to join despite reported interest from other clubs.
The Torquay-born hit-man is now aiming to repay the faith shown in him, after flying straight out from Ipswich’s game in Ireland to join up with his new boss.
"The major factor for me coming here was the gaffer,” he added.
“I think he really sold it to me. I believed everything he said when we spoke. He wants to move the club forward. I was inspired by his vision and I firmly believe that this season we will give it a right go.
"It is part and parcel of football, you have to be prepared to move and jump on a plane and travel at any moment. Circumstances change in an instant. Coming out here and getting straight into training isn't a problem. I know what needs to be done and I have a strong mindset and I wanted to get straight over here.”
