The Mills of Oldham!

The Mills of Oldham!

24 year old left back, Joseph Mills will be plying his trade in League 1 next season with Oldham after making his move to Boundary Park permanent this week following an earlier one month loan spell last season. Mills made 15 appearances for the Latics last season and now becomes Oldham gaffer Lee Johnson's first summer signing with the defender having agreed a two year contract.

Johnson said:

'It's a great signing. He's young, hungry and has got a lot of potential,' Johnson told the club's official website.

'We'll give him an identity and a bit of love and I feel he can be a really good player for us.'

His time at Turf Moor was not particularly successful. The former Southampton and Reading defender joined Burnley on a free transfer in May last year after a spell on loan, but this season he did not feature in Sean Dyche`s plans and played no part in Burnley`s promotion to the top flight spending his time out on loan to first Oldham in August 2013 initially for a month and then Shrewsbury. Mills joined Shrewsbury Town in January 2014 on loan for the remainder of the 2013-14 season. The only reason it seems he remained on our books was due to a contractual agreement. Mills signed by former gaffer, Eddie Howe initially joined Burnley on a season long loan after falling down the pecking order at Reading but it seems that the deal contained a contract clause that would force the club into signing the player on a permanent basis despite the fact his face never seemed to fit under new boss Sean Dyche.

Mills leaves the Clarets having made just ten appearances for the club all of them during his loan spell

No surprise there! Been a pointless exercise all round and surely a warning to write contracts more carefully!!
