English Premier League hopefuls Middlesbrough have completed the signing of young Bury striker George Miller according to the Gazette Live.

The 19-year-old Bolton born goal machine has made a real impact for former club Bury in a short space of time at Gigg Lane and the youngster will now look to further his career with Sky Bet Championship club Boro.

It has been reported that Middlesbrough have signed the player in a deal which could reach close to £1 million while Miller has penned a three-year contract with the Teessiders. Miller will initially spend the coming season with Boro’s Development Squad however the forward could force his way into the first team reckoning should he impress in the Premier League 2.

The youngster is a product of Bury’s academy system and the player went on to make his senior debut at just 18 years of age in a 3-0 defeat to Barnsley at Oakwell in a Sky Bet League One fixture.

Miller spent time on loan at non-league club Witton Albion at the start of last season before breaking into the Bury side upon his return to Lancashire, scoring eight goals in 31 appearances for The Shakers. Bury were naturally keen to hold on to the player but Miller has opted to make the move to the North East.
