Steve Evans says Rotherham can "do what we like" in the transfer market

Rotherham manager Steve Evans has the funds "to be able to do what we like" in the transfer market, with two potential deals on the table ahead of next week's season opener.

Evans has brought 11 players into the club so far this summer, but wants two more before the MK Dons clash on Saturday, with a loan offer in for one player and dialogue going on with another club over a permanent deal for another.

The Scot originally said he would only be bringing six or seven players in, but after a flurry of exits, the numbers quickly rose and are approaching the figure he brought in last summer.

Evans admitted he got his approach wrong last year, but there is a palpable difference in the quality of additions this time around compared to last.

Despite the amount of signings, the Millers boss says they are in a financial position to do more business.

"We're certainly hoping to add a couple of players this week," he said. "We know who we’d like to add. Our chairman is aware of that. 

"I had dinner with him on Friday night and we discussed further what we’d like to do going forward. 

"We’re sitting here with funds to be able to do what we like really. We’ve been very careful and scrupulous with our budget. 

"We’ve walked away from some players because we wouldn’t take ourselves out of our wage structure. 

"We’ve made an offer for another loan player. They involve loan fees these days. You don’t just get them and pay their wages. 

"We’re talking to one other club about a permanent transfer. 

"I think we have recruited really well. I think we are significantly stronger than last year."
