rotherham UNITED reportedly remain interested in Hibs midfielder Scott Allan, despite seeing a bid rejected by the SPL outfit.

An offer of around £375,000 from the Millers has been rebuffed by Hibs, according to reports in Scotland.

But talks between the Edinburgh outfit and Rotherham are set to continue.

However, it is understood that both clubs are at odds over their valuations of Allan, who scored the second goal in Hibernian’s 3-0 cup win over Montrose at the weekend.

Allan, 23, submitted a transfer request last week, and is keen on a move to boyhood heroes Rangers.

The Ibrox club have had three bids of £175,000, £225,000 and £280,000 for Allan rejected by Hibs, who remain adamant that the midfielder is not for sale.

Speaking to the Edinburgh Evening News, Millers chief Steve Evans said: “Any transfer business we do will remain confidential between the clubs.

“From a distance, one wonders why news of clubs bidding and not bidding gets out. We will not do that.

“We will deal directly with Hibernian should we pursue any interest in Scott Allan.”

Allan has had previous spells south of the border at several clubs, including West Brom and Portsmouth.

Allan joined the Baggies from Dundee United in 2012 and the ex-Scottish international went onto have two spells at Pompey and made a handful of appearances for MK Dons and Birmingham City.
