Sheffield United defender Ben Heneghan is expected to join Rotherham United on loan, according to the Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The Blades only signed the centre-back in the summer from Motherwell but he has struggled to break into their starting eleven so far this season.

Chris Wilder is apparently keen to let Heneghan leave on loan this month for him to gain some more first-team action. They are also looking to offload winger Nathan Thomas on loan as well.

League One side Rotherham United are in talks with Sheffield United over Heneghan and a move is looking likely to happen. The Millers are two points off the Play-Offs at the moment and their manager Paul Warne wants to strengthen his defence in this transfer window by signing Heneghan.

Heneghan, 24, was born in Manchester and played at Everton and Stoke City as a youngster. He got his first taste of first-team experience on loan at Drolysden from Stoke in 2012. He was released in 2014 and had trails at Oldham Athletic and Accrington Stanley before being snapped up by Chester in that summer.

He went onto play for Chester for two seasons and impressed for them in the National League. He signed for Scottish Premier League side Motherwell in June 2016 and played 43 games for them last season.

He was a target for various Football League clubs in the summer but it was Sheffield United who won the race for him. A move has not worked out as of yet but a loan move to Rotherham could help Heneghan to get himself back in Wilder’s plans.
