The Millers returned to pre-season training this week.

GRANT Hall may be in line to become the fourth Rotherham United old boy to return to the club for the new Championship season.

Lee Peltier, Sean Morrison and Tyler Blackett have all agreed new one-year deals after playing for the Millers last term.

Hall was on loan from Middlesbrough throughout the survival campaign and the Advertiser understands he could make the switch permanent now that his contract with his parent club has come to an end.

Talks have taken place between him and Rotherham and are believed to have gone well, although there has yet to be any official announcement of an agreement.

Pictures have emerged on social media of him training with the Millers this week.

Former Manchester United youngster Blackett signed on Tuesday, the day after Peltier and Morrison had put pen to paper.

"Tyler is a big one because he is clearly a quality player," manager Matt Taylor said. "We didn't see it enough last season because he came to us on the back of not having played for a few months."

The 29-year-old made six appearances following his March arrival after his departure from American side Cincinnati but his game-time was restricted by a hamstring issue.

"Being thrown in at the deep end of the Championship and a relegation battle took its toll on his body," Taylor said.

Another new arrival is coach Dan Green who has left his under-21 role at Premier League Aston Villa to join Taylor's first-team staff.

Green coached at Exeter City when Taylor was a player and then manager there.
