Rotherham boss Paul Warne is in the final vetting process ahead of making two new signings.
The Millers have got two defenders in at the club – a centre-half and right-back – and Warne is running the rule over them at close quarters before pushing the deals through.
One is thought to have been training with the club for a few days while the other arrived this morning.
Warne said: “I’m pretty close to bringing in a couple of defenders.
“I’m pleased about that. I’m just doing my last final checks to make sure they’re the people I hope they are.
“They are a right-back and a centre-half. One is virtually done. The other, a younger lad, is now at the club to train. He would be back-up for Semi (Ajayi).”
