Bradford boss Mark Hughes wants to make in-demand Barnsley striker George Miller his first signing
MARK HUGHES is weighing up a move for Barnsley's George Miller on a free transfer.
But the Bantams face stiff competition from newly-promoted League One side Exeter for the 23-year-old striker.
Miller, who is out of contract this summer, spent last season on loan in League Two with Walsall, scoring 12 league goals in 41 appearances.
The forward, who has had two temporary spells at fourth tier Bradford, has also attracted interest from Stockport.

Miller was on loan at Bradford for the duration of the 2018-19 season from Middlesbrough.

The Tykes agreed to let him see out the rest of the season at Valley Parade.
But despite that buzz of interest, Miller returned a paltry three goals in 28 games.
