Neil Redfearn admits interest in Sam Morsy but Rotherham are already off the pace

Rotherham will have to act fast if they want to bring Sam Morsy to the club this January as the race for his signature hots up.

Boss Neil Redfearn admitted he is an admirer of the Chesterfield midfielder, but is yet to turn that into anything firm in terms of an offer, already leaving them behind the ball game if he is on their wishlist.

Highly-rated Morsy, who is out of contract in the summer, has attracted plenty of attention this month with a host of Championship and League One clubs interested, and one unnamed second-tier club already has already had an offer rebuffed by the Spireites.

Further bids are expected and a conclusion to Morsy's future is set to be wrapped up within the next seven days as the window draws to a close.

Redfearn admitted he is a long-time fan of Morsy's but refused to be drawn on whether he likes him enough to bid this month, with the 23-year-old expected to cost a hefty six-figure fee.

The boss said: "Sam is another one who is a real talented young boy, he is somebody that I went to watch when I was at Leeds with my assistant Steve Thompson. 

"We went to watch him and the boy (Tendayi) Darikwa who ended pup going to Burnley, so we weren’t bad judges.

"He is a talented player a player, he is someone that I rate but we are looking at a lot of players. But there’s no definite interest."

One player that the Millers are definitely not interested in is Swindon striker Nicky Ajose.

Ajose was the subject of an internet rumour linking him to the Millers but Redfearn has shut it down.

"There is no truth in that." Redfearn said. "Nicky has done absolutely fantastic at Swindon. 

"I would have thought they would be looking for a fee, but Nicky is a fantastic lad. 

"It’s unfortunate that when I had my caretaker spell at Leeds Nicky was out on loan, I didn’t really have the chance to work with him. He is not someone that we are looking at at this moment in time.

"He has got his career up and running at this moment in time. I think Swindon would be looking for a sizeable fee. We have got other players that we have identified that we want to go and chase."
