Rotherham interested in resurrecting Jordan Willis deal from Coventry

Rotherham could be preparing to launch a second attempt to sign rising Coventry star Jordan Willis.

The Millers were on the brink of capturing the 22-year-old in the January transfer window only for the Sky Blues to pull the plug on the deal at the 11th hour, demanding more money.

With Coventry now heading to League Two, Rotherham could resurrect interest in Willis as they begin the vital recruitment process for life in League One next season.

 

Boss Paul Warne watched Willis in action in Coventry’s 3-1 defeat at Scunthorpe 10 days ago and has also been in contact with Coventry boss Mark Robins, someone he is on good terms with due to his Millers connection.

Willis is one of Coventry’s saleable assets, making 46 appearances for the club this season as they finished bottom of League One, and he is now entering the final year of his contract.

The Sky Blues skipper can play a number of areas in defence, including right-back – a position Warne is known to be keen on strengthening.
