Miller, 20, has joined Burton on loan until January, as announced by Spurs on their official Twitter account on Thursday.
The attacker featured in the first team during the London club’s pre-season games against Juventus and Atletico Madrid this summer, but is yet to make a competitive senior appearance for the club.
Miller can be deployed as an attacking-midfielder or a forward and will be hoping to gain some regular football in the Championship with Burton.
The youngster has made 36 appearances for the Spurs Under-21 side and has worn the captain’s armband, scoring six goals and supplying three assists.

Miller will now spend his first time away from White Hart Lane in the hope of developing and impressing manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Miller becomes the second Spurs player to leave on loan on Thursday as midfielder Nabil Bentaleb completed a season-long loan move to German side Schalke.
German publication Bild claim that the 21-year-old midfielder’s move is a loan-to-buy deal with a view to a permanent £16.2million transfer next summer.
Pochettino is continuing to narrow his squad down and give fringe players the chance to develop away from the club.
In other Tottenham transfer news, they have finally reached on agreement on a new signing after three rejected bids.
