Danny Mills (Represented By Our Agency)
Danny is best known for his time at Leeds United as a right back, however, he began his career with Norwich City after coming through their youth system.
He moved to Charlton Athletic in March 1998, helping them win promotion to the Premier League. Fifteen months later, Danny signed for Leeds United in a £4.1 million transfer, in what he later described as a “dream move” to “the club I love”.
Danny received his first England call-up in 2001. At the 2002 FIFA World Cup, he was chosen as England’s first choice right-back following an injury to Gary Neville, playing every minute of England’s five matches. He earned a total of 19 caps for the national team, all won in games played away from Wembley, a record for an England player in the modern era.
Danny spent the 2003–04 season on loan at Middlesbrough and then moved to Manchester City on a free transfer, signing a five-year contract.
In 2006 Danny joined Hull City in a two-month loan deal, returning to Manchester City in January 2007. He was then transfer listed and re-joined former club Charlton on a loan deal until the end of 2007.
In 2008 Danny joined Derby County for a brief period before returning to Manchester City until his contract expired. Danny then announced his retirement from football due to an ongoing knee injury.
Outside of football, Danny is a patron of the charity Shine. He has competed in the Brighton Marathon in a wheelchair completing the race in two hours and 43 minutes, and has also rowed the English Channel in a rowing boat for charity, to raise awareness of Melanoma skin cancer.
Danny is a regular pundit and commentator for BBC Radio Five Live’s coverage of the Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League and England national football team matches.
