ROTHERHAM United striker Jerry Yates is set to go out on loan again before the season starts.

The 22-year-old has struggled for game time with the Millers and had a productive spell at League Two Carlisle in the first half of the last campaign. The Cumbrian club are also understood to have made bids for the player.

Yates was recalled at Christmas but made only seven Championship appearances after return to AESSEAL New York Stadium.

Rotherham assistant manager Richie Barker respects the player's desire to go and get game-time.

He said: “Jerry will end up going out on loan. Understandably, he's said he's been stop-start for a couple of years now. He's enjoyed his time here but wants to go and play somewhere regularly.

“He had a spell at Carlisle and really enjoyed his time there.

“I commend anybody who comes and says they want to play football because, unfortunately, football is full of people who pick up their money and don't actually want to play.

“We should commend Jerry for the fact he wants to play more regularly.

“A number of clubs have expressed an interest in him.

“Jerry will have opportunities and it will be down to deciding between us, him and his agent on the best place for him to go and spend either half a season or a full season.”
