Rotherham United walk away from Scott Allan transfer

Rotherham have pulled the plug on a deal for Hibernian midfielder Scott Allan.

The Millers had been in dialogue with the Scottish Championship club for nearly a week trying to reach a deal for the 23-year-old, but were unable to entice him to England.

As a result the Millers have walked away from the deal, which would have cost the Millers in excess of £400,000, and Evans will turn his attention elsewhere.

Allan has handed in a transfer request after three bids from Rangers were turned down as he desperately tries to force through a move to Ibrox.

Hibs are refusing to sell to their rivals, though, and that opened the door for a potential move to the Millers.

But Evans revealed on Wednesday there was difficulty agreeing a price and said he would be prepared to walk away and has now done so after Allan preferred to stay north of the border.

"I have been talking to their manager for the best part of six or seven days now and we are just not getting there in terms of reaching the value they have set," Evans said.  

"I'm not going to name him, people can speculate, but it's a player sought after by other clubs. 

"We'll have a bearing of where our chairman sees that offer going, we will work on that towards the weekend and if we don't get there we will walk away."

Reports north of the border suggested the Millers had bid £375,000 for Allan, but the Scottish club later confirmed that Rangers were the only side to make an official offer, though they were in talks with Rotherham.

Meanwhile, Evans has revealed he will have to wait until the end of next week before they know whether they will be successful in a loan bid for a player.

The Millers have agreed a loan fee with a Premier League player, but his club will not allow him out until the start of the season.

Evans is now happy to put that on the back-burner with just 48 hours until the big kick-off against MK Dons on Saturday.

"The loan player is an outstanding player at a Premier League club and we have been told that decision will be the week after the start of the season so we won't get a decision until the back end of next week," Evans added. 

"The two lads we are trying to bring in will add something to what we have got. 

"But I am very happy as we go towards Saturday and there will be no distractions on Friday in respect of talking to players and making offers because the sole focus will be getting ready for Saturday."
