ROTHERHAM United have made enquiries about bringing old boy Will Vaulks back to AESSEAL New York Stadium on transfer deadline day.

The Millers are seeking to add to their numbers for their Championship survival battle before tonight's 11pm deadline and the midfield man, who now plays for derby rivals Sheffield Wednesday, is a figure of interest to them.

It is not clear at this stage whether any potential exit from Hillsborough would be on loan or on a permanent deal.

The Owls, one spot above the bottom-placed Rotherham in the table, have been seeking to offload a midfielder during the winter window.

They have already done that, with George Byers joining League One Blackpool on loan today, and may not now want to let Vaulks go.

Byers was also a player on the Millers' radar.

League Two pace-setters Wrexham have been tracking Rotherham midfielder Jamie Lindsay and may make a late move to land the 28-year-old who is out of contract in the summer.

His possible exit would explain why the Millers could be in the market for a new body in their engine room.

Vaulks, aged 30, became a crowd favourite at New York during a three-year spell between 2016 and 2019 before a £2-million-plus move to Cardiff City.

The player joined the Owls at the beginning of last season and has League One promotions on his CV with them and Rotherham. He has been in and out of the Wednesday starting line-up this term.

The Millers have yet to make any signings in this window and are keen to reinforce their squad today.

Head coach Leam Richardson spoke earlier in the window about bringing in a centre-half and an attack-minded player.
