Sky Bet League One side Rotherham United are holding out for the highest possible bid as they prepare for life without striker Danny Ward, according to the Sheffield Star.

The South Yorkshire side are in a strong position as numerous clubs have begun lodging offers for their front-man Ward, with it believed that the bids on the table have breached the £1million barrier.

Ward found the net twelve times for the Millers in his 43 appearances, but it is understood that at least two Sky Bet Championship sides – one of whom is expected to be Cardiff City – are interested in the relegated striker.

“He’s still here.” First team coach Matt Hamshaw said to the Sheffield Star. “It’s one that probably will happen. There have been a lot of ‘tos and fros’ in terms of the valuation of the player.

“I think it’s one that will happen, but when it happens we’re not 100 per cent sure about at this time. There is a lot of dialogue with other clubs.”

No matter what amount Ward is sold for, Huddersfield Town will receive a cut of the transfer fee.

Ward played for the Terriers for five seasons. During his time he amassed 117 appearances and 16 goals for the Yorkshire club, and in his transfer, to Rotherham, his former employers included a future sell-on clause.

The Terriers were promoted to the Barclays Premier League after defeating Reading in the promotion final at Wembley, however David Wagner’s side had a recent bid for Derby’s Tom Ince rejected.
