Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott, says he is still waiting for Ollie Banks to make a decision.
'I`ve not heard anything from Ollie or his father but I imagine they are thinking about the contract we offered him. He was given his chance on the last day of the season and I can do no more than that. If he doesn`t want to be at this football club then there are other players who do. Sometimes, at eighteen years old, you have to look at your career rather than the financial rewards and you have to think about it and not make a poor decision on what everyone else is telling you.`
Although the Millers Manager might not have heard anything from Ollie`s dad, Ian, who also once played for Rotherham, Ashley Ball of The Star has with Ian Banks saying, 'Ollie is a much better player than I ever was and I believe, at some stage, he can play at a lot higher level than League Two.
After being on trial with Newcastle last year, and reportedly doing well, Ian was under the impression that Ollie would have had more involvement this season with the first team, saying, 'He`s been offered a one year contract and it`s barely minimum wage, but he`s got to go and prove himself. Some people will say he`s achieved nothing in the game yet and I understand that. But, if he gets a run of games in the first team then Rotherham will make some money out of him.`
There was also interest for the young midfielder from Leicester City but they refused to pay what the Millers were asking for.
Speaking about Ollie`s debut for the Millers, in the final game of the season at Don Valley, Ian said, 'A debut is nice but scoring as well is a massive bonus. He was walking about with a smile on his face for three days afterwards! I was certainly proud to see him in the shirt.`
