Rotherham eyeing Michael McGovern on season-long loan

Rotherham are hoping to sign Norwich goalkeeper Michael McGovern on a season-long loan.

The Millers have approached the Canaries, who they have a good relationship with, about bringing the Northern Ireland international to the club for the 2017-18 campaign, according to reports in East Anglia.

They would be unable to pay all of the 32-year-old’s wages but hope to agree a deal where they contribute a percentage.


McGovern played 22 times for Norwich last season and has won 20 caps for his country.

Rotherham’s interest in bringing McGovern to New York Stadium spells bad news for Lewis Price, whose future at the club appears in doubt.

With the Millers paying a fee for Richard O’Donnell in January on a long-term deal and youngster Laurence Bilboe penning a new contract, there would be little room for another senior goalkeeper in Paul Warne’s squad.

Price, who has recently had surgery on his tonsils, fell foul of Warne after his moment of madness at Wigan, where he wrestled with Nick Powell in injury time, leading to a winner for the hosts.
