Rotherham’s pursuit of Kieffer Moore is over after the striker completed his move to Barnsley for an undisclosed fee.
The Millers had hoped to bring the 25-year-old striker back to the AESSEAL New York Stadium on a permanent deal, putting in a sizeable bid with room for improvement, but he is heading to a different part of South Yorkshire.
Boss Paul Warne had always stated that Moore wanted to return to the Millers, but the chance of Championship football and a reported eye-watering salary has seen the striker opt for a move to the Reds.

Moore has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract at Oakwell.
The Millers losing out to Barnsley in the transfer market is a familiar theme over the last 18 months, with the Reds landing Tom Bradshaw, Adam Armstrong and Ryan Kent ahead of their South Yorkshire rivals.
