Rotherham are one of a host of Championship clubs who are keen on West Ham attacking midfielder Marcus Browne, who is currently on loan at Oxford.
That’s according to Football Insider, who reckon the Millers are trying to compete with the likes of Leeds and Sheffield United for the 21-year-old.
Browne has five goals to his name in League One this season and has also impressed with his overall ability, with the youngster a very good technical player.
Even though Paul Warne’s men were heavily tipped for relegation and are currently outside the bottom three, the manager clearly thinks arrivals are needed in the New Year.
So, would Browne be a major coup for the Yorkshire side if they could pull it off?
We take a look…
This would be a stunning move if they pull this off.
Rotherham certainly won’t be the favourites to secure a deal for Browne, but they will definitely be able to offer him assurances over a starting spot.
He would be a big fish in a little pond at Rotherham, and would be an excellent addition that could help aid their fight against relegation.
From a Rotherham point of view, this’d be superb business.
Browne would add that little bit of quality in the final third and that could be huge during the run-in for Paul Warne.
Whether the player would be testing himself like he might wants is up for debate, but Rotherham would be delighted to get him on board.
This’d be a brilliant signing.
Paul Warne has the defensive side of his club’s game nailed down but their lack of attacking edge could still cost them.
Browne could therefore prove crucial in their quest for survival.
