Rotherham United close in on Neil Redfearn

Rotherham United are reportedly closing in on the former Leeds United manager Neil Redfearn, who is now as short as 2/5 with Sky Bet. The Millers have been searching for a new boss since parting ways with long-serving gaffer Steve Evans last month, but they may now have found their man in Redfearn.

Redfearn has been bidding to return to the managerial arena since leaving Leeds in the summer. The 50-year-old had been in charge of the Whites since October 2014, but was harshly overlooked by owner Massimo Cellino at the end of the season, despite being a popular figure with supporters. The Yorkshireman then accepted an offer to return his former role as head of the club's academy, but quit a month later.

If negotiations fall through, then the Millers may once again attempt to open talks with Walsall boss Dean Smith, while Northampton's Chris Wilder, former West Brom boss Alan Irvine, and Hibernian gaffer Alan Stubbs remain there or thereabouts in the Next Rotherham United Manager Market.

Rotherham are currently 21st in the Championship, just one place above the dreaded drop one, following a poor start to the season in which they have picked up just eight points from 10 matches. The club will no doubt be looking to appoint a new boss during the international break, ahead of their next match away to Brentford (Saturday 17th October).
