Rotherham in "dialogue" with Cardiff over Alex Revell return

Rotherham's Wembley hero Alex Revell could be about to make a sensational return to the club just 12 months after his exit.

The 32-year-old striker, most famous for his ambitious-but-brilliant volley against Leyton Orient in the League One play-off final, was sold to Cardiff in the 2015 January transfer window for a reported £400,000 after intimating he would not be signing a new deal.

However, things have not worked out for him in Wales as he has made just 28 appearances, scoring three goals, and after a loan spell at Wigan earlier this season, the Bluebirds have indicated that they are looking to off-load him.

Millers boss Neil Redfearn, who was not at the helm when Revell was sold, has expressed his interest and revealed the two clubs are in talks.

“Alex is somebody we have looked at. We've talked to quite a lot of players and quite a lot of players' agents and clubs. He's in that category," he said.

“There's been dialogue between the clubs. We'll just keep chipping away at the ones we're after.

“We've got to get what's right for us. He has got to fit in with what we want and where we’re out but he is somebody we're interested in.

“He's one of several. We're looking at quite a few players in that area. The lads have done great to battle and fight to get us out of the bottom three, but now they need some help.”

Revell wrote himself into Millers folklore with his two-goal antics at Wembley, but his contribution during back-to-back promotions should not be understated.

And Redfearn believes the 32-year-old would not think twice about returning to New York Stadium.

“There is an interest in Alex. He's is obviously someone who did well for this football club," he added.

“He's fondly remembered by the supporters here and I know he feels the same way about the club and the supporters.” 

The news of Revell's potential return to New York Stadium has been met with a mixed response by Millers fans, with just 51 per cent of over 1,000 voters wanting the striker to return.
