FORMER Hartlepool United hero Tommy Miller could be on the radar of Pools first-team coach Neale Cooper after he was released by Huddersfield Town.
The 33-year-old ex-Sunderland midfielder was one of seven players to be told by Terriers boss Simon Grayson that they would not be required in the npower Championship.
Miller’s last contribution to Town was a bittersweet one – he celebrated promotion at Wembley on Sunday with a dramatic League One promotion play-off penalty shoot-out win over Danny Wilson’s Sheffield United, but only after missing the first of his side’s spot-kicks.
Miller, from Shotton Colliery, has made no secret of the fact that he would love to return one day to Pools, a club where he came through the youth ranks to become a highly-rated goal-scoring midfielder in the old Third Division.
Gary Roberts, Nathan Clarke, Gary Naysmith, Danny Cadamarteri, Aidan Chippendale and Simon Thomas and rookie defender Greg Pearson are also leaving Huddersfield.
