Now, Paul Warne has spoken about the possibility of signing players on a free transfer to bolster his options. Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, the Millers boss said that he will be taking the chance to add free agents to his squad, with a midfielder the man priority after MacDonald’s injury. Warne said:

Opinion: Ex-Norwich City and West Brom man had a ‘touch of class' about him

“If there is an opportunity to bring someone in, we will, because it is a big blow losing Macca [MacDonald]. The way we play and playing two games a week, it is physically exhausting.

“If you look at our upcoming fixtures, to play all them games and get everybody through those is going to be pretty tricky.

“If I could bring a midfielder in, I think I would and January will be big for every club. I have got someone in mind, I have had someone in mind for the last three to four months.

“I think the player may be keen on coming. I will arrange to meet the player next week and see if anything can materialise.”
