Rotherham face disappointment over transfer target as new Swansea signing’s delight revealed

On-loan Fulham star denies any move to Rotherham United.

The newly promoted Championship club will have much work to do if they are to compete successfully in their new league.

Rotherham have already lost the duo of Michael Smith and Michael Ihiekwe to south Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday and will hope to use their departure as a means of bringing in new talent ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Millers had reportedly done everything they could to keep the duo at Rotherham but on Wednesday morning, their former manager Paul Warne spoke to the BBC saying: “In regards to Smudge (Smith) and Iky (Ihiekwe), I know they are well though of at our football club.

“We have done everything we can with the chairman’s support to try keep them.

“I have even sent them comedy video messages, when I have had a drink, beggin them to stay!”

As Warne and his squad mourn the loss of Smith and Ihiekwe, they will also look ahead to the opportunity their departure creates.
