Sky Bet Championship new boys Rotherham United have confirmed their retained list, which has revealed that six players are free to find new clubs. The Millers recently defeated Shrewsbury Town at Wembley in the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final.
Paul Warne certainly made a great impression during his first full season as a manager but guided the club back into the second tier at the first attempt. Rotherham are now focusing on improving their bad showing the last time they played at that level. Six have been allowed to go, whilst the four players that were on loan have returned to their parent clubs.
Those loan players are of course Marek Rodak, Josh Emmanuel, Richie Towell and Caolan Lavery. The first three mentioned were all regular starters and it remains to be seen if they’ll return next season.
Welsh goalkeeper Lewis Price has mainly acted as cover for the last few seasons at the New York Stadium, and Warne has decided to move him on. Full back Shaun Cummings is another, whilst Jonson Clarke-Harris exits, after ending last season on loan at Coventry City, who also won promotion. Youngsters Mason Warren, Kuda Muskwe and Darnelle Bailey-King complete the six names that will be leaving.
Whilst those six are left, Warne provided some rather interesting comments,
“I’d like to thank the lads for their efforts whilst with the club and I wish them all the best for the future.
“In some cases there may still be a future at Rotherham going forward, we are still looking into the possibility at this stage, but I have spoken to those individuals and said that if there is something out there that is suitable for them in the meantime, we won’t stand in their way.”
