Championship club Rotherham United are set to appoint Paul Warne as the club’s manager on a deal until the end of the season, according to reports.

The Millers are struggling in the Sky Bet Championship this season, sitting in 24th place with just 13 points in 25 games; managing just three wins.

Warne is the third boss in charge of the South Yorkshire outfit since the summer. Alan Stubbs was dismissed as manager in mid-October.

Kenny Jackett was a popular choice as replacement, but resigned after just 38 days in the job; leaving Warne in charge of the first team.

Now, Rotherham are set to give the 43-year-old the job on a deal until the end of the season.

The club are 12 points from safety with 21 games remaining. Rotherham face Norwich City at the New York Stadium in their next game. They then travel to promotion hopefuls Newcastle United before returning to South Yorkshire for a local derby against play-off outsiders Barnsley.

The Millers also crashed out of the FA Cup on Saturday, with League One side Oxford United securing a 3-2 victory away from home.

On the pitch, Rotherham recently lost Izzy Brown after Chelsea recalled the youngster from his loan. The player then joined Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield Town.

Sheffield Wednesday are also looking into the possibility of signing Rotherham’s top scorer Danny Ward. Ward has nine goals and three assists so far this season.

In terms of incomings, Rotherham United, Bradford City, Southend United and Shrewsbury Town are all in the race to sign Chesterfield’s Jon Nolan.
