The 24-year-old, who blazed a trail netting 26 goals in the club’s promotion to the Championship last term, had been in talks with club bosses regarding an improved contract with his current deal expiring next summer.

Agard, understood not to be among the higher earners at the New York Stadium, has now turned down a fresh offer from the Millers and is understood to be disappointed and surprised by the club’s valuation of him.
