Both widemen are available for Rotherham’s trip to Brentford on Saturday and the deals are hoped to be made permanent after the weekend, according to BBC Radio Sheffield sports journalist Rob Staton. 

Ward, 24, is out of contract at the John Smith’s Stadium in the summer and Town boss Chris Powell had hinted yesterday that former Liverpool trainee Hammill, 26, could be leaving the club.

Former Bolton Wanderers winger Ward had been recently linked with a move to West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United.

The 24-year-old joined Huddersfield in July 2011 for a fee believed to be around £1 million after a successful loan spell and has gone on to make 117 appearances, scoring 16 goals.

Once a trainee at Leeds, Ward started his career at Bolton but only made two appearances for the Trotters and spent the majority of his time out on loan at Swindon Town, Coventry City and Huddersfield Town.

He scored 10 goals in 38 league appearances for the Terriers last season as the West Yorkshire side finished 17th in the Championship.

Hammill began his career at Liverpool but failed to make a first-team appearance and spent time on loan at Dunfermline Athletic, Southampton, Blackpool and Barnsley, joining the latter on a permanent basis in August 2009.

After 12 goals in 62 appearances for the Tykes, he joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2012 for £500,000 but could not hold down a permanent first-team place at Molineux and had loan spells at Middlesbrough and Huddersfield.

Hammill joined the Terriers on a permanent deal in June 2013 for an undisclosed fee, signing a three-year deal, and went on to make 49 appearances and scoring four goals.

The two follow striker Jon Stead out of the door, who joined Bradford City on loan for the rest of the season. 

Rotherham are 19th in the Championship, just one place and two points behind Huddersfield, and face Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday.
