Last updated : 21 July 2020 By Millersmad

The 23 year old has spent the last 8 years through the Millers youth system and made 47 appearances for the Millers scoring twice.

However, the striker has spent time out on loan at Carlisle and latterly Swindon Town, where he scored 14 goals.

Such was his form with the Robins, they were interested in his services on a permanant deal, but with the Millers exercising thier right to a further year on Yate's contract, and Blackpool showing interest a bidding war ensued. with Blackpool today coming out on today with an undisclosed bid accepted (rumoured to be around the £200k mark plus addons)

Yates signed 3 year deal with the Seasiders and talking to their website he said; “I’m buzzing to get this over the line and sign for Blackpool. I’ve known about the interest for a while now, so to finally be here is a great feeling. This is an exciting Club with a huge fanbase and a big vision for the future.”

“I’m ready and waiting to help the Club succeed and I can’t wait for what’s to come.”
