Rotherham United transfer round-up: Giles on Coventry exit, Sunderland eye former target, Gnanduillet update

Published

on

We have entered the final stages of the winter transfer window, which usually brings a fair bit of drama and excitement. 

Rotherham United have made just one signing in the window so far but Paul Warne may be keen to do a little bit of late business.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up all the latest Millers transfer news as the end of January approaches…

Ryan Giles addresses switch from Coventry City

The Wolves loanee was announced as Rotherham’s first, and up to this point, only signing of the winter window earlier this week.

Giles, who is predominantly a left-back or left wing-back, spent the first half of the season on loan with the Sky Blues but has made the switch to the New York Stadium.

Speaking to the club website, he explained why: “It was time for a new challenge. This is a great challenge and I’m definitely looking forward to it.”

The 21-year-old scored on debut as Warne’s team beat Middlesbrough last night.

Sunderland make a move for prior target

The Millers were linked with Ross County striker Ross Stewart in the previous transfer window and it seems he could now be on the move to England.

Rotherham had a £300,000 bid rejected in September and now Sunderland are making a move for the 24-year-old, according to the Scottish Sun.

Stuart’s current deal is set to expire in the summer, which means he may be available for a reduced fee.

It will be interesting to see whether that makes Warne and co consider another bid.

Striker target secures move elsewhere

Rotherham are understood to have been interested in striker Armand Gunanduillet, who was a free agent after leaving Turkish club Altay SK.

It seems they’ve missed out on landing him, however, as he has signed with Scottish Championship club Hearts.

The tall forward fired in goals for Blackpool in League One in recent seasons and has made a fast start north of the border, scoring twice off the bench on debut.
