Rotherham United have signed their second player of the day bringing in striker Kyle Vassell from Blackpool – subject to FA and EFL ratification.
The well travelled forward came through the Youth Ranks with Brentford, although his first club as a schoolboy was Norwich City, and although he failed to get in the first team he did have loan spells with Working and St Albans City.
2011 saw Kyle join Dover Athletic but after just a handful of games moved to Sutton United where he also had dual registration with Tooting and Mitchem United and White Hawk of the Isthmian League. March 2012 saw him sign for Staines Town before playing for Conference South side Chelmsford City. The summer of the following year Kyle moved to Bishop’s Stortford which led him to league football with Peterborough United.
Kyle played around thirty times for the Posh and while at London Road had loan spells with Oxford, Dagenham and Redbridge and Shrewsbury Town. In January 2016 he moved to Blackpool and went on to make over sixty appearances, twenty-nine of those coming last season when he hit the back of the net eleven times.
When the Millers were the visitors to Bloomfield Road in December, the twenty-six year old lasted just ten minutes before going off injured.
All at Vital Rotherham welcome Kyle to the New York Stadium.
