Rotherham United have had a bid for Ross County’s exciting midfielder Jamie Lindsay rejected by the Scottish Championship club, as reported by HITC Sport.
Ross County earned promotion back to the SPFL at the end of last season and are reportedly not prepared to lose one of their star players as they prepare for life in the top flight.
That comes with a risk; he’s out of contract at the end of next season and could leave on a free transfer. The report suggests that Rotherham will be back for another bid in a transfer tussle that’s likely to run for a while yet.
Lindsay bagged six goals in 35 Championship matches last season for the Staggies and has been capped up to Under 19 level with Scotland. He came out of the Celtic youth set-up, but never broke through at Parkhead.
Instead, he had loan spells with Dumbarton, Greenock Morton and lastly Ross County, before making his switch to Dingwall permanent last summer.
Lindsay is a right-footed advanced midfielder who can sit behind the main striker dictating play, but also likes to get forward and chip in with goals.
Rotherham will be back for Lindsay, but I imagine they’ll have competition. The boy came out of the Celtic youth set-up and has that little bit of class that comes with such an illustrious upbringing.
He starred for Ross County last season but they’ll know with bids coming in, holding on to him will be tough. Expect other sides to join the hunt.
I’ll be very surprised if he begins next season with the Staggies.
