Rotherham's January sales: Who could go?

Despite Rotherham’s win over Hull dragging them back in to the survival race in the Sky Bet Championship, January still looks set to be a pivotal month.

Boss Neil Redfearn is desperate to bring some added quality into the squad as he plots to keep his side in the division.

A centre-half, right-back and new striker could all be on the shopping list as the Millers aim to strengthen at both ends of the pitch.

The expected influx at New York Stadium inevitably means that there are likely to be players going the other way.

Redfearn said last week: “I envisage some players leaving in January. I think that's natural. Some players will always move on.

“It's important that the number of your group is a healthy number. There's no point having people who are going to get nowhere near your first team and are going to be sat at home on a Saturday afternoon.

“They all need to feel like that they've got a chance of getting in or around it. So it's a natural process that some will move on.”

Here we look at which players, separate to those who are already out on loan, could be heading out of the Millers next month.

Paul Green

The experienced midfielder has not featured since his harrowing appearance against Ipswich where he was at fault for two goals and went on to get booed by his own fans. Still probably able to do a job, the Millers’ midfield has moved on since that day in November and the 32-year-old will want – and needs – game time at this stage in his career.

Frazer Richardson

Richardson’s opportunities this season have been restricted by injuries and illness and he is in a similar position to Green. He has also not featured since the Ipswich game and at 33, the right-back will not want to be sat in the stands on a Saturday.

Emmanuel Ledesma

Redfearn recently said the former Middlesbrough winger is one player whose name has been circulated to other clubs and he is almost certain for a January exit – provided someone wants him. He has featured for just eight minutes under Redfearn and appears unable to win the new boss over.

Matt Derbyshire

Most likely to be dependant on whether Redfearn can bring anyone in up front, but the Millers boss might be tempted to allow Derbyshire to leave if there is interest. The striker has not started since the defeat to Ipswich, though has featured regularly from the bench. He has failed to rediscover his form of last season and Redfearn appears to be looking in a different direction.
