Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott says that he will be keeping an eye on the situation of former loanee, Jon Harley at Notts County.

Asked by Radio Sheffield if it was a problem with County why the Millers couldn’t get the thirty-two year old back, Scott said, ‘It wasn’t Notts County it was all the parties that couldn’t come together and time was dragging on and we just felt, although disappointing, we didn’t want to lose out on the other targets we had.

‘Jon had done well with us so maybe it’s something we can look to do in the summer but we have got other names and if Scott (Griffiths) does well then his name is on the cards too.’

Another option the Millers had been looking at was Rob Kozluk, who had been training with the Millers, but signed for League Two rivals Bradford City yesterday and Scott said, ‘He was an option but I had other positions to look at like the left-hand side and Scott and Sam (Wood) were my priorities.

‘I’m happy with the squad we’ve got. With Cressy (Ryan Cresswell) coming back we’ve got defensive options now and we’ve got Richard Naylor training with us so that gives us extra options. Rob was excellent while he was training with us but I don’t think, in the short term, it was something we could do quickly and he got a contract with Bradford until the end of the season, he spoke to me and I completely understand.’

Asked about Jack Compton who has been rumoured to be on his way to the Millers, Scott said, ‘Jack is someone I’ve looked at. He did well at Bradford and he’s a name we’ve spoken about and he maybe someone we look at in the future. He has ability and can cross a ball and we will keep an eye on him but Sam (Wood) was my priority but we had to have a contingency plan.’
