Warne keen to keep Millers' group together
Well done...Paul Warne with recent signing Michael Smith in Tuesday's win over Bradford City.

MILLERS chief Paul Wayne says he has yet to receive offers for his senior players, nor does he expect any to want to leave the AESSEAL New York Stadium this month.

Warne has brought in striker Michael Smith and midfield man Matt Palmer in the January transfer window, with skipper Lee Frecklington and goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell moving out.

Although there is time for movement before next Wednesday's transfer deadline, his confidence in the squad's commitment is strong.

“We have a really good group and they're all motivated to get into the team,” he added.

“I would be amazed if any of them want to leave because the 18 we had on duty on against Bradford on Tuesday have all played a part for us in the last ten games.

“I would be surprised if any knock on my door and ask to go.”

Back in the play-off zone after a nine-match unbeaten run, the Millers have a free weekend before their next match at home to AFC Wimbledon next Saturday.
