More new signings at Rotherham unlikely as interest in former Norwich City winger cools

Rotherhamlad1983 - Own work

Rotherham United are unlikely to sign former Norwich City winger Ben Marshall as reported by the Yorkshire Post.

The news was confirmed by Millers boss Paul Warne this morning in his press conference ahead of the visit of Bristol Rovers at the weekend.

Marshall has been a free agent since his release by the Canaries in the summer. While Warne admitted he held talks over bringing the twenty-eight-year-old to the New York Stadium, the player ultimately decided it was not something he wanted to do.


Marshall spent time in the youth ranks at Manchester United and counts Wolves, Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers amongst his previous employers.

Warne also confirmed it was doubtful whether the club would make any further signings in January, insisting his squad was good enough for the run-in.

The Millers have only signed Hakeeb Adelakun so far this window, the winger joining the club on loan from Championship side Bristol City until the end of the season.

Our View

Rotherham have quietly risen to the top of the League One table in recent weeks after a mediocre start to the campaign.

Warne is an astute operator and Millers fans should trust him on signings, but we can’t help feeling a few more new faces might ensure an immediate return to the Championship.

Reports suggest Marshall is thinking over his options, but after failing to land a deal in the summer, he should make a move soon, or his career could further stall.

He’s a good player, and we find it a little odd he is still without a club.
