4. Matt Mills

Chris Brunskill

Name: Matt Mills
Squad Number: 4
Position: Defender
Joined: July 2012
Contract Expires: 30th June 2015

Matt Mills, a product of the Southampton youth system which has brought through names such as Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott, has had a somewhat nomadic career to date including spells at clubs such as Manchester City, Coventry City, Doncaster Rovers, Reading and Leicester City.

Mills made his name at Doncaster Rovers, where he was both captain and record signing, joining the club in 2008 for £300,000 from Manchester City. Mills would go on to impress before eventually joining Reading under the command of Brendan Rodgers for £2m in 2009.

In July 2011 Mills left Reading to join a Leicester City side who were flush with money following a Thai-backed takeover, to be managed by former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson. Mills had rejected a move to Premiership outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers, instead making a reported £4.5m move to Leicester. His time with the Foxes would be tempestuous at best, as rumours emerged in February 2012 of a bust-up with new manager Nigel Pearson which saw Mills stripped of the captaincy and relegated to the reserve side.

He was picked up for a reported £2m by Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle as he attempted to shape his squad for a crack at promotion to the Premier League, but injuries and loss of form restricted him to a handful of appearances.
