Rotherham United remain keen on bringing Grant Ward back to the New York Stadium.

The 24-year-old is still a free agent after leaving Ipswich Town at the end of last season and is wanted by his former club, as per a report by the Sheffield Star.

Ward was on loan with the Millers for the 2015/16 campaign when they stayed up in the Championship under Neil Warnock.

The winger started his career at Tottenham Hotspur and enjoyed loan spells at Chicago Fire, Coventry City and Rotherham before moving to Ipswich in 2016. Ward made 98 appearances in his three years at Portman Road and scored eight times.

He has been injured since his summer departure from the Tractor Boys, hence why he hasn’t signed for anyone yet, but is believed to be on the road to recovery.

Rotherham boss Paul Warne has said, as per the Sheffield Star: “I did speak to Wardy a few weeks ago, just touching base with him to see where he’s at. He’s now running on the grass and all that. He still hasn’t got anything.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if, when he’s fit, Ipswich re-engage and re-sign him. That’s sort of what I get a feel of.”

He added: “If he does reach out to me – because I don’t want to hassle him like a stalker – and say he’d consider coming here or wants to have a chat, I’d definitely meet him. 100 per cent. Whether I’d have the funds to do anything, I’d have to ‘green light’ that with the chairman. If it’s something I could do. I would be keen on doing it, yeah.”
