Rotherham edging closer to signing Richie Towell on loan with view to permanent move

 

Rotherham boss Paul Warne has expressed his desire to sign former Dundalk man Richie Towell for another spell with the now Championship side.

Speaking to It’s Miller Time, Warne said about the possible deal; “Richie Towell is a possibility, I think the world of him,” the boss said. “I speak to him regularly, I spoke to his manager last week, we speak to Brighton on a regular basis.

“If we can agree the terms that is suitable to everyone then great, I have a lot of time for Richie.

“It’s awkward because every time I phone him he still calls me gaffer.

“It would be a loan if possible, with a view to signing him permanently.”

“I would love to get Richie back, he did a good job and I think he still has a lot to improve and if he can have a year in the Championship and do a really good job I don’t think he would be a million miles away from a (Republic of Ireland international) call-up.

“That would be something I would like to do, but if I got everything I wanted then it would be a good world.

“Richie is one of a few midfield options we have got. I think we need to sign two in the middle.

“I always think that players who have been here before and you have worked with before and like are worth more than anyone else, because they get it, they know the environment.

“I would like to bring Richie back but in fairness to Brighton he is their player so it’s up to them.”

  1. About time he’s a regular in the champo. Must be gutted with his lack of progress considering he’s gone almost 3 years, missing Dundalk’s 2016 european adventure in the process!

  2. As a Rotherham fan this would be amazing. A top player who had a great season with us last season, would love to see him back. A permanent deal would be fantastic, think wages would be an issue though
