Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock says he expects the club’s retained list to be announced next week, while talks with Chairman Tony Stewart are ongoing.
The Millers boss has been in discussions with his staff regarding which players will be offered contracts and which will be released ahead of next season and hopes to have a concrete list shortly after the weekend.
“We’re looking at the retained list and that should be coming out next week,” Warnock explained.
“We’ve had two meetings about that already and I think it will be finalised early next week.”
Warnock is also keen to progress with plans to develop the club’s training ground and has been in discussions this week with Chairman Tony Stewart, but admits that he understands that the Millers are working to a tight deadline in the close season.
“I’ve had meetings with the Chairman about the training facilities and hopefully we can get something done before the start of the season in August,” he added.
“I realise how difficult it is with the time schedule but I know the Chairman will do his best to meet that.”
Despite the curtain coming down on the 2015/16 campaign, Warnock and his staff have not taken a break from the action and the Millers boss insists that will remain the case following his trip north of the border last weekend.
“In the meantime, we’re doing everything you would do normally,” he explained.
“I went to Scotland last weekend and saw a game on Sunday which I found very interesting and the other lads have been out looking at the scouting side of things.
“Everybody will be on the road looking and we’ll have people taking in the Play-offs because nothing really stops in the summer."
