MANAGER Matt Taylor has dropped a huge hint that Rotherham United are offering a contract to trialist attacker Andre Green.

The boss spoke after Tuesday's night's pre-season win over Sheffield United about making a decision on the former Aston Villa forward within 48 hours.

But he also revealed that the club will be discussing details of a deal with the 24-year-old who scored against the Blades to claim his second goal in two trial games.

“We'll sit down as a staff and also sit down with Andre and talk through what we might want it to look like,” Taylor said. “From his side as much as ours. I want him to be comfortable. He’s done himself no harm by scoring twice.”

Green is a free agent after spending two seasons in Slovakia with Slovan Bratislava for whom he played in the Champions League.

EFL trialists can play in only two games so he would have to sign permanently to be eligible for Saturday's friendly at Lincoln City.

The fear now is that other clubs, alerted by Green's Millers exploits, could be keen on the player. “The centre-forward market constantly moves and other people will have watched these two games,” Taylor said. “We have to be aware of that. We'll see how it pans out.”
