SIGNING | Vassell becomes second summer signing

29 June 2018

Kyle Vassell joins Rotherham United...

Rotherham United boss Paul Warne has added another name to his 2018/19 squad this afternoon in the form of forward Kyle Vassell, who also joins subject to FA and EFL ratification.

The Millers are delighted to confirm the capture of the 25-year-old frontman, who joins fellow Blackpool teammate Clark Robertson in putting pen-to-paper on a three year deal at AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Like Robertson, Vassell played a pivotal role in helping the Seasiders to promotion from League Two, notching 13 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions in the process and also saw him finish the season as the club’s joint top goalscorer alongside Brad Potts and Mark Cullen.

The Milton Keynes-born frontman started out with Norwich City before he joined Brentford where he would continue his football education. Early experience came in the forms of work experience loans to in the non-league before he departed for Dover Athletic following the conclusion of his scholarship at Griffin Park.

A number of moves in the non-league followed before he caught the eye of Peterborough United whilst playing for Bishop’s Stortford, who swooped to secure his signature for an undisclosed fee in 2013.

Vassell enjoyed loan spells with Oxford United, Dagenham and Redbridge and Shrewsbury Town whilst contracted at London Road and ended his three year affiliation with Posh by joining Blackpool in 2016.

Kyle will join Clark and his new Millers teammates for the first day of training at Roundwood on Monday.
