Rotherham United could make a new approach for St Johnstone striker Stevie May, reports The Star

Football League World reported in May that the Millers were interested in the 21-year-old with boss Steve Evans going to watch the striker play for the Scotland Under-21’s.

But interest in the striker appeared to have ended when the club signed Jordan Bowery from Aston Villa for a club record fee.

Now The Star suggests Rotherham have rekindled their interest as May has turned down an offer of a new contract from St Johnstone and the Millers are ready to smash their transfer record for a second time this summer for the extra striker Evans wants.

May has attracted interest from Queens Park Rangers this close season after scoring 27 goals in 48 games for The Saints.

The striker started his career at McDiarmid Park after progressing through the club’s youth system to make his debut at 16 when he came off the bench to score against Airdrie United in May 2009.

He had to wait over a year before making another appearance and went on to score twice in 23 matches during the 2010/11 season.

In the following two seasons, May spent time out on loan at Alloa Athletic, where he scored 19 goals in 22 appearances and Hamilton Academical, where he struck 26 times in 35 games.

He returned to St Johnstone and carried on his prolific goalscoring exploits last season. Overall he has made 78 appearances for The Saints, scoring 30 goals.
