Shaun Miller has rejoined Crewe Alexandra on a permanent basis, according to reports. The striker agreed to two year terms with the League Two outfit. The 30-year old returned to the club on a loan deal in January from Carlisle United.

The talented player started with Crewe Alex back in 2006, going on to score 43 times in 179 games. He moved to Sheffield in 2012 while also appearing for Coventry and Morecambe. He played on loan spells in Shrewsbury, Crawley and York. In recent news, he would be remembered for being the first player to be found guilty of simulation based on the then newly implemented Football Association laws. He was banned for two games last October.

Crewe opted to make Miller their second summer signing, after snapping up Paul Green from Oldham Athletic,following his release by Carlisle. His six goals in 15 games proved helpful as the David Artell led side finished 10 points from the red zone.

Artell recently release four players as he plans for the forthcoming new season. Ross Woodcock and ZoumanaBakayogo were let go after their contracts ran down. Youngster Woodcock was thought not to be deserving of a new deal as with 20-year old striker Daniel Udoh. The much experienced Chris Dagnall was also released from his commitments to Gresty Road.

Aside the four released, two others who were on loan have returned to their parent club:striker Harry McKirdy and Jamie Sterryof Coventry City.Artell handed contracts to Travis Johnson, Joe Lynch, Billy Sass-Davies and Regan Griffiths ahead of the 2018/19 season.
