Warne confirmed that the Millers have long since been planning for life without Ward, and is actively pursuing a number of potential strikers.

"We have got David Ball," he told

"We have made offers elsewhere, and we are talking to potential recruits. We are looking to start the season with five strikers so that will give us some good competition for places. Over the next few days before the lads start back for pre-season we will have at least one more striker through the door and possibly two."

Warne says that the planning for next season's attacking options started at the back end of last season, with the 12-goal striker expected to return to The Championship.

Warne added:

"From the last kick of last season we knew his future was elsewhere and that's why we have been proactive behind the scenes trying to get strikers into the club. We are continuing with that process.

"Once we got through January, I knew if the season didn't pan out the way we wanted it to, and there was another opportunity which was right for Danny and the club, then we wouldn't stand in his way. That's what has inevitably happened."
