Neil Redfearn confirms January interest in Jonson Clarke-Harris but relishes chance to improve him

Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn revealed the club received interest in striker Jonson Clarke-Harris during the January transfer window, but that they were never going to let their "major asset" leave.

The 21-year-old was linked with moves to Reading, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton last month, with Redfearn saying that some interested parties got in contact regarding a potential price tag.

Clarke-Harris remains the Millers' top scorer this season with six, though he has not started since the 2-0 defeat at Huddersfield in December 15 and his confidence suffered a further dent last weekend with his crucial penalty miss against the Addicks.

Redfearn has been frustrated by the club's record buy at times, but believes he can turn him into the finished article.

"There was interest in Jonson, and rightly so. He's a major asset to this club and I want to work with him for the next two years," he said. 

"I want to make him into a top performer. I want Rotherham United to get the benefit of him. 

"I'm not saying he wouldn't get good coaching elsewhere, but it would be only as good as the coaching he's getting here. 

"My advice to him was stick around because eventually he's going to be the main man up top. 

"He's going to be the one who gets us 20-odd goals a season. He's not for sale. 

"There was interest. There were tentative enquiries as regards money, but at the end of the day he's our player.

"We want him here. He wants to be here. We've got him in a good place where he can thrive."
