According to a report by The Sun, Rotherham United are lining up a move for Dagenham and Redbridge striker Oliver Hawkins.
Oliver Hawkins has been in prolific form for National League outfit Dagenham and Redbridge, who were recently relegated from the Football League and will undoubtedly be harbouring ambitions of a swift return to League Two.
Hawkins is second only to Dover Athletic striker Ricky Miller in the National League goalscoring charts.
The 6’3” striker has netted 12 goals to help lift Dagenham and Redbridge to 4th place where they are 2 points clear inside the play-off zone.
The London-born forward has plied his trade in the lower leagues for his entire career with North Greenford, Hillingdon, Northwood and Hemel Hempstead before he joined then-League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge last January.
The 24-year-old penned a two-and-a-half year deal with the Daggers and has been exceptional for them since establishing himself as a first team regular this season.
Reports suggest that Kenny Jackett sent scouts to watch Oliver Hawkins in action for Dagenham and Redbridge in their recent FA Cup loss to Halifax Town but the striker was actually playing at the back in that game and was sent off for a push in the box.
