ROTHERHAM United are being linked with Bolton Wanderers striker Jamie Proctor.
Sources in Lancashire say the Millers have made contact about the 25-year-old former Swansea, Crawley and Fleetwood man. He has a year left on his contract and would command a small fee. South Yorkshire and League One rivals Doncaster Rovers are also said to be keen.

Proctor spent the second half of last season on loan at Carlisle after struggilng to make an impact at Bolton, who he joined from Bradford City a year ago.
Standing more than 6ft tall, he had his most productive runs at Crawley and Fleetwood, netting 25 league goals in total, but hasn't been as regular a scorer since. He claimed four goals in 16 outings for Carlisle.
With Danny Ward expected to leave the New York Stadium imminently, Rotherham need to boost numbers up front.
