The Administrator at Rotherham United, Jeremy Bleazard, has today put out a press release saying that the deadline for any offers for the club has been extended for one week.

Mr Bleazard told the Official Site, ‘Several interested parties have requested an extension to the original deadline to make offers to purchase the club. I have agreed to extend the deadline until Friday, 18 April at 5pm.’

Mr Bleazard also confirmed that talks over the players wages were ongoing with the PFA.
‘The PFA are due to meet the players again in the near future to discuss the current position and their wage deferrals.

‘The problem any Administrator has when trading a company is that of funding the business until completion of the sale. I am seeking deferrals and have implemented other essential cost savings to reduce the outgoings of the club.

‘However, matchday and other costs can’t be reduced and I am at a stage where help is required to fund the club until a funder or purchaser is found. I am looking for donations, regardless of size, to assist with the day to day running of the club.

‘Any donations can be made directly to the club and further details can be found on the clubs website.’
