Rotherham United really need to do this to avoid becoming a yo-yo club

League One Play-Off Final winners Rotherham United need new faces if they are to avoid going straight back down to League One.

The Millers have released six this window, and there has been a worrying lack of players coming through the door at the New York Stadium, with not a single player joining so far.

After releasing six players, Millers fans will feel slightly nervous about the lack of transfer activity from the club.

Not strengthening for a Championship season would be a big mistake from Paul Warne, who has signed a new three year contract with the South Yorkshire club. 

Rotherham do possess quality, particularly in David Ball and Will Vaulks, but this needs to be built on if the Millers are to have a hope of survival next season in a very competitive Championship.

Top goalscorer Kieffer Moore returned to his parent club Barnsley during last season, and the goals he brought to the club must be replaced.

With a forwards like Lyle Taylor reportedly available, Millers fans will be hoping the club could tempt a player of this calibre to Yorkshire to play Championship football.

Shrewsbury Town midfielder Abu Agogo is available after turning down his latest contract offer, Rotherham could look to a player of his standard to bolster their midfield options in the next campaign.

Whilst Rotherham do not have the financial resources available to some clubs in the Championship, with Nottingham Forest among several clubs to be spending large fees this summer, a clever use of loans and free transfers could still lead to Rotherham having a very competitive squad going into next season.

With Paul Warne at the helm you can guarantee hard work and a good team spirit, but without extra quality coming into the club it could be a long season ahead for the Millers.

There is still time for plenty of additions, but it is something the club need to urgently press on with.
