It’s little surprise that Rotherham boss Paul Warne is making overtures at the prospect of trying to make Kieffer Moore a permanent signing.
The striker has quickly put himself at the top of the bill in the Millers line-up this season, with four goals in two league starts, three of which coming in an ovation-inducing 45 minutes against Southend 10 days ago.
On a season-long loan from Ipswich, Moore has quickly settled into life in South Yorkshire, both on and off the pitch.
Warne thinks his man possesses the Millers DNA and will think about crunching some numbers in a bid to get him to stay permanently.
“He is someone I would like to have longer at the club going forward,” Warne said.
“I think certain players suit certain clubs at certain times and Kieffer Moore is a typical Rotherham attacker.

“I think the fans really appreciate what he does and how hard he works for someone so big. He looks after himself amazingly well so he is right up my street.
Despite the transfer window shutting in just over a week, Warne is not up against any time constraints.
The Millers will have Moore until January at the very least as part of his loan deal from Ipswich, who can recall him in the new year if they wish.
Rotherham have until then to assess Moore and work on a potential deal, that’s if Ipswich are even willing to sell.
“I think a decision will be made, but it is not dissimilar to the George Hirst situation, if Ipswich are not looking to sell until January then it doesn’t matter what I offer because they will be thinking while he is scoring and in the shop window he will be in no rush,” Warne added.
“If I could put a bid in that would attract him in a few weeks’ time then I would. I know we are the only ones who could buy him before January because of the rules.
“If the player wants to stay and everything was right then I would like to keep him. I don’t have to do it this window, so that is not an immediate rush.”
