Paul Warne talks to www.themillers.co.uk...
Rotherham United boss Paul Warne has given a Deadline Day update following today’s attempts to strengthen his squad.
The Millers boss and his staff have worked right up to today’s 11pm deadline, but he conceded there would be no players signing or leaving the club.
Warne told www.themillers.co.uk:
“I agreed with a club to sign a winger from the Premier League earlier today, but the player in question decided to stay at his parent club, rather than come out and play games. That was disappointing but we have to respect his decision.
“We were close on a couple of other targets. One was very keen to come here, but another team came in higher up the division, so unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
"A number of opportunites have been explored fully throughout the window, but finding lads available of the right quality to strengthen our squad has not been easy.
“Whilst we were keen to strengthen, it was just as important to me that we didn’t lose anyone, despite interest in some of our players. We have kept hold of our main players, and with others to come back from injury, I know we have a great group here capable of competing in this league.
“We move on now and our focus turns to Millwall this weekend. We have trained well this week, the lads are in good spirits and we look forward to the challenge ahead.”
