Huddersfield Town have had a £1m offer for Rotherham United’s Danny Ward rejected according to a report from HITC Sport.
While the Millers have had a miserable season so far as they currently sit at the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship and don’t even have a manager after the shock resignation of Kenny Jackett. But one bright spot that the club has had is Ward, who has been a star for them this season. He has scored nine goals so far this year and will be looking to add to that to the second half of the season.
But with Rotherham looking relegation to Sky Bet League One in the face, several of their Sky Bet Championship rivals believe that they will be able to sign the 25-year-old forward during this transfer window. Over the last week, reports have suggested the likes of Derby County, Ipswich Town, Sheffield Wednesday and Wolves are interested in signing Ward but it was Huddersfield who made the first offer.
They are very familiar with the former Swindon Town man as he spent four years at the club before being sold to Rotherham in 2015. But this seems to be a move that they regret after they placed a £1m bid for Ward as they looked to beat all of their rivals to the punch. However that plan has been left in tatters after the South Yorkshire club decided to turn down their offer. Because of their relegation battle, they are looking to keep hold of their star player but it remains to be seen if they will be able to hold off all the suitors until the end of January.
