Rotherham boss Paul Warne expresses signing wish

Paul Warne begins his final week of the summer away from the training ground hoping to tie up some new signings.

The Millers boss is closing in on two new arrivals and hopes to get the deals done in the next 48 hours as he prepares for pre-season training.

The triumphant League One play-off winning squad return to Roundwood next Monday and Warne wants a number of signings in place before then.


He is targeting a goalkeeper, right-back, two central defenders, a midfielder and a striker and has been linked with a host of names over the past couple of weeks.

A deal for a defender, who played against Rotherham in League One last season, is understood to be close to being concluded and could be first through the door at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Warne is also keen on a return for Fulham goalkeeper Marek Rodak, though they may have to wait until he resumes training with his parent clubs over the next week.

He has met with at least three players over the last few weeks as he aims to add to the squad that was so successful last year.

The boss has a strict no-ego policy and will not let that be compromised, no matter how good the target is.


“I have met three players in the last two weeks who I want to go and sign,” he said.

“I had to look them in the eye and make sure I liked them as human beings and they had to like me.

“We are obsessed with players having no egos.

“We have been trying tor recruit to good human beings, good footballers at a good age to come in and join the group.

“We try and get the right sort of people. We are trying to sign, young, athletic, hungry lads, who are trying to play in the Championship and it is a good stage of their careers.

“We have just got to get a good group together that is going to be hard to play against and you don’t know where that is going to take you.”
