Rotherham United are thought to be ‘closing in` on a striker with Manager, Ronnie Moore not ruling out having one in, in time for the game at Morecambe tomorrow.

The Millers are without Ryan Taylor and Tom Pope, both with long term injuries and Tom Elliott, who is on loan until January from Leeds, pulled out of the Carling Cup game on Tuesday night with a sore knee, although it`s expected he will be fit for tomorrow.

Moore is waiting to hear back from Jon Macken, who has also interested other clubs including Bradford City (and in my eyes is probably playing the clubs off against one another) and has also asked about Izale McLeod, who Moore wanted to have a look at before committing himself but neither the former Charlton player or his agent were keen on that idea.

Of course, there has also been speculation about Ronnie`s son, Ian Thomas-Moore, who slapped in a transfer request when Tranmere wouldn`t give him the extension to his contract that he wanted. Yesterday, Rovers signed Kayleden Brown on a month`s loan from West Brom and there was to be a meeting last night at Prenton Park to talk about the Thomas-Moore`s future.

Meanwhile, Moore hasn`t ruled out fetching back midfielder Josh Walker, who was on loan with the Millers last season from Middlesbrough.
