Rotherham boss Paul Warne is confident he will be able to keep hold of star striker Kieffer Moore, but is looking for potential replacements just in case.
Moore’s future is set to be a hot topic between now and January as the Millers try and tie up a permanent deal for him while hoping Ipswich do not decide to recall him after Christmas.
Warne’s instinct is that his nine-goal striker will stay at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, but he is still wanting to add to his portfolio of strikers regardless.
“He’s been excellent for me. I brought him in. I wanted him here,” Warne said of Moore.
“The fans can rest assured that I will do everything I can to keep him here. He’s a typical Rotherham number 9 in my opinion.
“However, he is gaining attention from everybody else, which is obvious. We will do our best to try to keep him. Until something exciting happens, there isn’t much else I can say.
“Obviously, if we put all our eggs in the Kieffer Moore basket and something happens to him, we’re snookered, aren’t we.
“We’ll look to earmark two strikers of similar ilk. That might be Kieffer plus one, because of Jamie’s Proctor’s injury.
“If Kieffer does leave – and I don’t think that will happen – we might have to being two in.
“We have a list we’re going through now; not to replace Kieffer but to strengthen up the top of the pitch. That is happening all the time.”
