An update on Rotherham’s pursuit of Marek Rodak

Rotherham are making headway in their attempt to bring goalkeeper Marek Rodak back to the club.

The Slovakian spent last season on loan at the Millers from Fulham and played a vital role in helping secure an instant return to the Championship.

Boss Paul Warne said he was keen on getting Rodak back and a return to the AESSEAL New York Stadium and is understood to be looking positive.

 

Rodak’s parent club Fulham also won promotion, winning at Wembley 24 hours before the Millers, which has strengthened Rotherham’s case.

The Cottagers have Marcus Bettinelli and David Button vying for the number one shirt, with rookie Magnus Norman also in the ranks.

The 21-year-old, who signed a new contract at Craven Cottage in February, has been on holiday having had an even more extended season than the rest of his Millers team-mates.

Rodak was called up into the senior Slovakia squad for the recent friendlies against Holland and Morocco, but was an unused substitute in both matches, the last of which was on June 4.

He played 35 times for Warne’s side in League One, with three cup appearances, having won the battle for the starting spot with Richard O’Donnell.

He overcame some early doubters, who took exception to his punching policy, and was an important player as the Millers went on to win promotion.
