MANAGER Matt Taylor is refusing to say whether talks have taken place with striker Billy Sharp over a move to Rotherham United.  

The 37-year-old is a free agent after leaving Sheffield United and the Millers are in the market for centre-forwards as they prepare for the next Championship campaign.

Taylor kept his cards close to his chest and when asked if there had been discussions replied: “That's a private one for myself and the club and Billy and his agent.”

The Advertiser understands there has been negotiations between Rotherham and the player, a prolific scorer at second-tier level during his long career.

Taylor did admit to being an admirer of the attacker who parted company with the Blades following their promotion to the Premier League.

“We played Sheffield United twice in the league and also in a couple of friendlies last year and that hunger, desire and aggressive nature he's got is obviously still there,” the boss said. “Most managers in the Championship would want to sign him.”

Sharp has spoken about his situation and says he will make a decision on his next destination some time this month.
