RUFC - Moore on Thomas-Moore
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says he doesn`t know where the link with his son, Ian Thomas-Moore and Rotherham United has come from.
Speaking to MillersPlayer, Ronnie said, 'I know our Ian has asked for an extension on his contract at Tranmere. They haven`t given him one so he`s handed in a transfer request.
'Now, anyone who knows anything about football know that if he`s handed in a transfer request and Tranmere are willing to let him go, then we will be favourites to bring him here. And, I don`t think there`s any doubt that he would like to come here. He`s thirty-three going on thirty-four and at this level he`d be a wow. He`s got pace, scores goals, I mean, he played wide on the left last year and got fifteen goals.
'But there`s a long way from that happening and in the meantime we`ve just got to keep our options open and see what we can do.
'We`ve put an offer in to Jon Macken, and Bradford have also put an offer in to him so basically it`s just waiting on the agent coming back. I think he`d be a striker who would do well for us. He`s got great feet and great link-up play. I think it was a good offer from us but the season`s kicked off and he will want to be playing. Players have got to start to lower the asking price they want. But, we`ve given him the offer and that`s it, if he doesn`t like it then we`ve got to look somewhere else and he`s got to find a club.`
