MORTON are expected to begin their summer signing spree today by completing the transfers of Michael Miller and Lee Kilday, the Tele can exclusively reveal.

As well as receiving verbal commitments from Stefan Milojevic and Conor Pepper, manager Jim Duffy has agreed terms with defenders Miller and Kilday.

The Tele has learned that the pair are both scheduled at Cappielow today in order to put pen to paper on one-year contracts.

Once the paperwork is processed, the additions will see the number of signed members in new Ton boss Duffy’s, above, first-team squad increase to eight.

Teenager Miller is a Celtic youth graduate who spent the second half of last season on loan with Dumbarton, in which time he made 14 appearances and scored two goals.

One of those run-outs came against the Ton at Cappielow on 1 April.

Although a right-back to trade, the versatile 19-year-old played at left-back as Kenny Shiels’ men recorded a surprise victory. A member of the Parkhead club’s Under-20 squad, Miller’s Celtic contract expires on 30 June, whereupon his deal with the Ton will kick into effect.

Like Miller, unattached former Hamilton Accies man Kilday is also an adaptable defender, who, although predominantly a full-back, has also featured at centre-half.

The 22-year-old lined up against Morton twice last term, playing out the full 90 minutes at right-back in Accies’ 1-0 win on 28 December and then in the 10-2 debacle on the final day of the season.

Kilday was released by Hamilton boss Alex Neil last month following the New Douglas Park side’s promotion to the Premiership via the play-offs.

Upon his departure Accies secretary Scott Struthers said: “Lee made a total of 45 first-team appearances and was always a popular member of the squad. “He leaves Hamilton with our best wishes for the future.”
