Rotherham United need to sign these two players if they are going to survive

Rotherham United had a terrific season last time out as Paul Warne steered them to a dramatic 2-1 Wembley win over Shrewsbury in the League One Play-Off final.

Warne is now readying his troops for the upcoming season which will see them come against the likes of Swansea City, West Brom, Stoke City and Leeds United.

Reinforcements are clearly required if the squad are to be competitive next season.

Rotherham will be desperate to not have a repeat performance of their last Championship campaign which culminated in a very embarrassing relegation, as the club only notched up five wins and 23 points throughout the whole campaign.

This article is going to take a look at two potential transfers that could be crucial to The Millers chance of survival…

Marek Rodak

One potential loan transfer is that of Fulham goalkeeper and Slovakian under 21 international Marek Rodak.

Rodak is well known to the Millers fans as he spent the whole of the 2017-2018 campaign on loan at the New York Stadium.

At the beginning of his loan spell he very much divided opinion between the fans but very much won the fans over throughout the campaign, and there is no doubting he finished up as a huge favourite at the club.

Reports circulating suggest that a loan deal for Rodak is close to being completed and it is a move that is being welcomed by the fans.

Rotherham currently have two other goalkeepers on their books in the form of former Wales international shot stopper Lewis Price and youngster Laurence Bilboe.

Rodak is currently enjoying pre-season with the Premier League new boys and it will remain to be seen where he will be plying his trade in the upcoming season.

Richie Towell

Another transfer that could be on the horizon is the permanent transfer of midfield maestro Richie Towell.

Similar to Rodak, Towell also spent the duration of the last campaign on loan at the New York Stadium and has stated that he would welcome a return to the club if he fails to force his way into parent club, Brighton & Hove Albion’s, Premier League plans.

The former Ireland under 21 international was very impressive for The Millers last season and played a vital role in the club’s promotion campaign. Overall he made 45 appearances for the club, notching 6 goals in the process.

Towell signed for The Seagulls in November of 2015 but has only managed to make 8 appearances for the club, scoring once in the process.

Reports have shown that gaffer Paul Warne is keeping tabs on his situation with Brighton and it looks as if this transfer saga could rumble on for the next few weeks.
