Rotherham boss Neil Warnock has confirmed that he is in talks with free agent Nile Ranger, the Star reports.
The 24-year-old, who has been training with the Millers for over a fortnight, was last attached to Blackpool, where he was released from his contract in February.
It is believed that he was allowed to train with Rotherham after a request from Leon Best – the two spent time together at Newcastle, where Ranger was believed to be a future England star.
Whilst he made 11 appearances for the Under-19 team, that was the end of his international career, and has since had loan spells with Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday, before signing permanently for Swindon Town in 2013.
The striker scored eight times in 23 games for the Wiltshire side.
With past convictions for assault and criminal damage behind him, it was believed that Ranger had wanted to get his career back on track before signing for Blackpool last September.
Warnock will reveal the outcome of his discussions with Ranger next week.
Rotherham are currently 22nd place in Sky Bet Championship, just one point adrift of safety and a win, which would be their fourth in a row, on Saturday could mean they jump up to 19th place, should other results go their way.
