Rotherham United have joined the race to sign Ex-Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
The 29-year-old was linked with a moves to Birmingham City, Brighton and Hove Albion, Bolton Wanderers, as well as recently relegated Burnley last week. It now appears that Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United have entered the chase to sign the Jamaican international.
Leeds surprisingly turned down a bid of £500,000 for the Jamaica international from Wigan Athletic in January, they may now feel it was a mistake not to cash in on him.
He arrived at Elland Road in 2012 from SK Brann in Norway. He’s since made 100 appearances for United, scoring eight goals including a wonder strike against Watford, which won goal of the season for this year.
Steve Evans’ Rotherham United will hope to convince him to join their side, who will be more local then any of the other clubs interested, as they look to push on from being a club fighting relegation next year.
The Millers ended up finishing in 21st place, amassing 46 points this season in the Sky Bet Championship.
