RUFC - Millers withdraw offer to player

Rotherham United Manager, Steve Evans has explained that the player he was 'confident` of signing yesterday has had a better offer.

Speaking in his usual Gaffer on Sunday on the Official Site, the Millers boss, who had cut his holiday short to try and secure this un-named player, said that the player was asking Rotherham United to match the offer from the other club which neither him or Chief Operating Officer, Paul Douglas were willing to do saying it was 'unprofessional`. He also went on to say that the football club will not be held to ransom like this and the player was contacted and told that the offer was withdrawn.

The Gaffer says that he is still in talks with a club in England regarding buying a striker with Chairman, Tony Stewart, also keen on getting the player. He is also in talks with what he describes as two 'decent players` in a defence and midfield role.

On other matters Steve said that they had chosen Parkgate FC as their first friendly of the season as he wanted the first game to be 'at home` and that he values the relationship between the two clubs.
