'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Evans on latest targets

Rotherham United Manager, Steve Evans talks about some of the rumours doing the rounds such as Robbie Brady (Manchester United) and Gary Roberts (Huddersfield).

Speaking to MillersPlayer today, the Millers Boss said, 'I'd looked at Robbie Brady and would love to have him but he's going to play at a much higher level.

'Gary Roberts is probably too expensive for us. He's had a season where he's been crippled by injuries but he came back and played a real meaningful part at Huddersfield and it must have been a big decision for Simon Grayson to let him go. We're always interested in good players and I had a chat with Simon but there's a pay structure here.

'I'd love to bring a natural left-back in because we are a little short there. We're speaking to one or two now and probably some time next week or the week after it will happen. The package has to be right and we have to feel that hunger like we have with the players we've brought in. We've got two or three which are probably hair-splits over the characteristics we are looking for but, as yet, we haven't offered a left-back terms.'

Asked about a winger, Evans said, 'We've had a wide player around the stadium today and, once again he was impressed. Since he left he's spoken to me twice and re-affirmed in our minds that he wants to play a part here, which is always good to hear. There are no secrets about this kid. He's played in League One and played over forty games for his club last year and over one hundred and fifty League One games in the last three years. He's young, he's hungry and he might want to live in South Yorkshire, which might give us the edge and we will be continuing talks over the weekend.

'There was a striker we had round the stadium last week and he's excited about joining us and is waiting for us to make an offer. So, if the Chairman sanctions the offer, I've got him waiting.

'We are close to bringing in two either over the weekend or next week and it's just a matter of me and the Chairman ticking the right box and making it happen.'
