'No phone calls' for Jonson Clarke-Harris says Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn

Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn has revealed he has not received any phone calls from clubs wanting to buy striker Jonson Clarke-Harris.

The 21-year-old is the Millers' top scorer this season with six goals and has reportedly attracted interest from Sky Bet Championship rivals Sheffield Wednesday and Reading.

However, despite expecting his striker to get attention, Redfearn insists the Millers have had no firm interest in him.

"There is going to be interest in him because if you look at him he has got great ability, he can finish, he’s a beautiful build for a striker, he is quick, so there is going to be interest, which is good, it means we are doing the right thing," he said. 

"There haven’t been any calls for him."

Clarke-Harris, who has dropped out of the side in recent weeks, came under fire for his performance after coming on as a sub in last week's defeat to Preston.

The striker seemed to be visibly disinterested at Deepdale and his disappointing afternoon was capped off by scoring an own goal with the last meaningful action of the match.

But Redfearn, who's made his name as a coach that develops young talent, says days like that are one of the perils of having inexperienced players in your side.

"The disappointment for Jonson was that he found it tough against Preston at a time when we needed him to be at his best," Redfearn said. 

"These things happen in football and we have got to move on. It’s not ideal and obviously disappointing for him and disappointing for us. 

"I have had good conversations with him and he knows how I feel. 

"He knows how I am as a person. I am full on and in his face and he knows that but he also knows I am on his side.

"I talk things through with him, we work on him in training. We work on his touch and his movement and game management and how he plays. 

"What you find with young players is that you get highs and lows. That is just one of the drawbacks of having young players in your side."
