Rotherham United are delighted to confirm the signing of midfielder Sam Clucas on a contract that will run until the end of the 2023/24 campaign, subject to EFL and FA ratification.
Having left one place vacant in the recent submission of the club’s squad list to the EFL, Millers boss Matt Taylor has moved quickly to complete the quota by bringing in the experienced midfielder, who has been without a club since his contract with Sky Bet Championship outfit Stoke City ended.
The 32-year-old can call upon a wealth of second tier experience having donned the colours of both Stoke City and Hull City at the level.
Clucas’ footballing journey began in the youth ranks of Leicester City before a season in non-league with Nettleham. Despite being offered a scholarship to play in the United States, Clucas opted to sign for his hometown club Lincoln City following a successful campaign in non-league.
Spells in Spain with Jerez Industrial were backed up by a rapid ascent up the footballing ladder. Successive seasons at Hereford, Mansfield, Chesterfield, and Hull set Clucas up for a money-move across the Welsh border to Swansea.
After a single campaign with the Swans, Clucas hopped to fellow Sky Bet Championship side Stoke City in another big-money move. Now, on the back of 143 appearances in five seasons at the bet365 Stadium, the versatile operator arrives in South Yorkshire chomping at the bit for more consistent second tier action.
Sam will assume the number 8 shirt during his time with Rotherham United.
Everyone at the club would like to welcome Sam to South Yorkshire and wish him all the best for his time as a Miller.
