Rotherham United’s Head of Recruitment Rob Scott told the Official Site today that the Millers will be ready with replacements if and when any player leaves.
Which is good news.
But could any of those players be former Millers Tom Adeyemi and/or Grant Ward?
Well, that’s what the East Anglian Daily Times have been hinting at today with both being released by fellow relegation side Ipswich Town.
Twenty-seven year old Tom played twenty-nine games for Rotherham in the 2016/17 season when on loan from Cardiff City with the midfielder wading in with seven goals, six of which were Championship strikes. Tom’s time at Ipswich wasn’t perhaps how he’d have wanted with illness and injury frustrating him (and apparently former Manager Paul Hurst) and he only actually made five appearances for Town, none of them last season.
Midfielder Grant was with the Millers the previous season, on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, scoring two Championship goals in forty-three appearances. After leaving the Millers he signed for the Tractor Boys. He managed just fifteen appearances last season with a cruciate knee ligament injury in December keeping him out for the rest of the season.
It has been reported that there have been former players in touch with Rotherham Boss Paul Warne but are Tom and Grant those players – or two of those players?
I remember the pair well and thought they did well in a Rotherham shirt but with both seemingly a little injury prone in the last couple of years is this what we are looking for?
