The Millers have been pretty busy so far this transfer window, Richard O'Donnell and Lee Frecklington leaving the club, and striker Michael Smith coming in as replacement for Kieffer Moore.
Speaking to the Star, Warney confirmed he was active in the transfer market; “We’ve put a bid in for a player. We’ll put bids in for other players if needs be, We’re trying to recruit in this window a long-term midfielder. If it isn’t this window but in the summer, that’s what it is. But we’re trying to recruit now.”
“We need to reinvest the money to replace Frecks, We desperately need to bring in one midfielder; in my opinion, two. I’m going to try to sign a central midfielder who’s going to be here for three or four years. The chairman has kindly allowed me to have the money. That’s good. If I need to get in a loan to make it four centre mids, I will.”
“We have loads of really good characters at the club, It’s felt like a different club since we came back for pre-season. It’s been really fresh. We’ve improved the training ground. We’ve signed loads of young players."
"Frecks had a massive impact on this team, but we move on. It can’t go on forever. I didn’t have Frecks on the pitch against Blackburn and I don’t think the team crumbled in any kind of way.
