MIDFIELD playmaker Nicky Law has held talks with a team in Scotland, Rotherham United manager Andy Scott has admitted.

Scott is resigned to losing the out of contract player, who is currently abroad on holiday in Italy, this summer.

The Millers have already accepted one offer for the 23-year-old from a club in League Two, believed to be newly-promoted Crawley Town.

Scott said: “We had some interest and a couple of offers but I think he (Nicky) has spoken to a team in Scotland. That means we won’t receive any fee for him which is a bit of a blow. I think we always knew he was going to leave but I am a little bit surprised about the move he is making but it’s his decision and we can’t affect that.”

While Law is on the verge of leaving Rotherham, reportedly for Motherwell, midfield anchorman Jason Taylor has agreed a new one-year deal. He joins Dale Tonge, Jamie Annerson and Ollie Banks in committing to the Millers for next season.

“Jason had some things going on in the close season that have been difficult for him and we understood that,” said Scott. “We are delighted he has committed his future to us as he is another good player we can add to the squad.”

Taylor, who arrived from Stockport County in January 2009, made 43 appearances for the Millers last term, scoring five goals.

The Millers head to non-league Parkgate for a friendly on Monday August 1.
