Mullins is a major coup - Moore

Ronnie Moore reveals he never thought he would capture the signature of defender Johnny Mullins, as he gets close to sorting out a deal for Mark Bradley. 24 year-old Mullins signed from Stockport on Tuesday and with a host of clubs in for him, Moore was suprised to land his man."Johnny is a fantastic signing for the club. He has played a lot of football at League One level and there were a number of clubs chasing him so it's nice that he has chosen to come to us," said the gaffer."We never really thought that we had a chance of getting him but with the situation at Stockport and the new consortium coming in, I think he was just looking for a change."We got a whisper from somebody who said that he might be available and it just went from there."Moore added: "I've known Johnny for a long time. He can play at centre-back or right-back. He is aggressive, a good talker and I think he is a fantastic signing for the club when you look at the other sides who were after him."Johnny has shown a willingness to come aboard and has seen the ambition of the club. Everybody who you speak to in football who knows Johnny speak very highly of him so I think we have pulled off a major coup in getting him."MillersMAD understands Moore is also very close to finalising a contract to sign Mark Bradley, released by Walsall, but other clubs including Shrewsbury Town are also talking to the midfielder.Moore concluded in todays Star: "I won't be far off with my final squad now if we can add Mark to the midfield."Welcome to MillersMadHere's our LATEST Messageboard topics MillersMAD are proud sponsors of Dale Tonges home kit.
