Ipswich Town striker Kieffer Moore has joined League One side Rotherham United on a season-long loan.
The 24-year-old forward joined the Tractor Boys in January, on an 18-month contract from Forest Green Rovers, and made 11 appearances for Mick McCarthy’s side.
However, Moore struggled to hold down a place in the starting eleven, and with striker Joe Garner arriving at Portman Road from Rangers last month, the 6ft 5in striker has joined the Millers in search of more first team opportunities.
Speaking to Rotherham’s website, manager Paul Warne said: “We are delighted to bring Kieffer into the club.
“He played against us last year and did well. We spoke to a few people about him and it was all good news. He has got some amazing attributes.
“He is really keen and ready to learn. He is very athletic and very strong and it is another striker to add to our attacking force.
“Kieffer’s arrival now gives us more options. I have always said the more strikers and the more competition I can get up front the better. He will play a part in the game tomorrow night and I look forward to seeing how he shapes up.”
Moore had previously played for the likes of Truro City, Dorchester Town, Yeovil Town and Norwegian side Viking before joining Ipswich in January, and has linked up with the Rotherham squad at their pre-season training camp in Austria.
He is the sixth player to join Warne’s ranks following the arrivals of David Ball, Darren Potter, Michael Ihiekwe, Ryan Williams and Jamie Proctor, and the boss said: “I am really happy that he [Moore] decided to come to us, he has come out to Austria and he has got on with the lads straight away.”
