Rotherham United are hoping to have brought in a new player before this weekend’s game with Leeds United.
Speaking to iFOLLOW Millers Manager Paul Warne said that he and his assistant Richie Barker had been speaking to an ‘attacking player’ this week who they are hopeful of getting through the door before the weekend.
As well as this player the Millers Boss said they had a few more ‘on the hook’ and he is hoping to add another two before the window closes at the end of the month.
He was also asked about midfielder Richie Towell who is in his second loan spell with Rotherham.
‘We want him on a permanent,’ Warne admitted, ‘but I don’t think that’s going to happen. If it doesn’t we will revisit it at the end of the season.’ Richie is on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion and this season has scored three goals in eighteen appearances.
Fetching in another ‘attacking player’ might be what a lot of Millers fans are after but, we do actually have a number of forwards at the club including Jerry Yates who had his loan spell with Carlisle cut short when we re-called him. We also have Kyle Vassell who is getting back to fitness and, eventually, Jamie Proctor, providing once he’s back to being fit we can keep him there.
