Paul Warne talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Manager Paul Warne is expecting the future of loan ace Tom Adeyemi to have been concluded by the end of the month.
The Cardiff City midfielder enjoyed a productive spell at the AESSEAL New York Stadium this season, scoring seven goals in 30 appearances in all competitions.
His impressive form prompted boss Warne to put an offer to him for a permanent switch to South Yorkshire, but the former Norwich and Birmingham operator has taken many an admiring glance over the previous 12 months.
Whilst Warne acknowledges that keeping the 25-year-old will be tough, he has stated the Club have made him a good offer with a decision on his future likely in the next few weeks.
"The offer we made to Tom was pretty impressive,” Warne told www.themillers.co.uk
“He's a really honest kid, and I think realistically his future is in The Championship. Both him and his agent have said to me that if they don't get a Championship move he wouldn't have any hesitation about coming back here and playing for us.”
Warne has enjoyed a fruitful relationship with one of his top performers from last season, and has hinted that if a move to The Championship didn’t materialise, this could be a big pulling factor in potentially bringing him back to the AESSEAL New York Stadium.
In the meantime, the Millers boss is pressing ahead on other fronts whilst he waits for Adeyemi’s decision, which he expects will arrive in the next two weeks.
“If Tom does move on he will go with our blessing and I thank him for what he did here, and maybe our paths cross later on in our careers,” he added.
“Tom is going to have to think over a few offers, so I would expect that he would have had his future sorted out by the end of this month.”
Warne revealed at the back end of last week that he expects to have heard something on the three contract offers made to Richard Wood, Richie Smallwood and Joe Mattock by the end of this week.
Striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has already committed himself to a new deal with the Club.
