Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn trying to sort several deadline day issues

It might not be as busy as in days gone by, but transfer deadline day will still see Rotherham boss Neil Redfearn attending to a number of issues.

Under former boss Steve Evans the final day of the transfer window was often a fraught affair with a revolving door in place at New York Stadium and not just for the pizza delivery man.

However, things are expected to be less frantic today, though Redfearn will still be busy.

He is closing in on an appointment of a new assistant manager, Grant Ward's loan extension is almost complete, he's on the hunt for a new midfielder and a number of players could be leaving the club.

On his potential number two, Redfearn said: "There is one person particularly that I have been speaking to and I think he would be good for Rotherham United. 

"He is at a club and I have gone through the front door, I have asked the manager and he is fine with it, so hopefully we can progress that."

The Millers are desperate to off-load Greg Halford, Chris Maguire and potentially more of their fringe players while bringing in some midfield reinforcements to cope with the absence of Lee Frecklington.

"There will perhaps be some departures," Redfearn added. "I think the problem we have got is that we have not got the strength in depth in those two central midfield roles, we have got Richie (Smallwood) and (Paul) Greenie in there but if we want to change it around or if we get an injury we are a little bit light. 

"Obviously with Freck and his hamstring we are a little bit short so that is something we might have to look at."

One midfield issue that is set be to cleared up is the future of Grant Ward.

The 21-year-old on-loan Tottenham man is due to stay until the end of the season with Redfearn admitting a deal is almost done.

"We are more or less there with it now," he added. "That's a big plus because Grant has played really well, he's been a big part of what's been good so hopefully that gets concluded."
