Third-tier sides Millwall, Gillingham and Peterborough United are said to be weighing up moves for Dover Athletic’s Ricky Miller, according to the Daily Mail.

A string of impressive performances for the National League side has seen the 27-year old notch 20 goals already this season, and he is beginning to make a name for himself within the EFL.

The former Luton Town man joined the Kent club after his contract at Kenilworth Road was terminated in 2015, after he was surrounded by allegations of racial abuse and assault.

Despite being acquitted by a court of law, the forward was unable to find another League club, and dropped down to the National League with Dover.

Miller has been dubbed Dover’s ‘best ever player’, and chairman Jim Parmenter has claimed that any move to lure him away from the South Coast will be blocked.

“Ricky is not for sale. He is under contract at this club and is a big part of our push for promotion this season.”

However, the player is out of contract in the summer, which would allow any club to acquire his services for free.

The Whites have made a flying start to their National League campaign, sitting in 6th position, and are hoping to mount a challenge to secure a place in the EFL for the first time in the history of the club.

The club have come into the public eye in recent seasons following a series of eye-catching FA Cup runs; in 2015 they earned themselves a home tie against Premier League Crystal Palace in the third round, and in 2011 they travelled to then-League One outfit Huddersfield Town at the same stage of the competition.
