Former Premier League striker Leon Best has been handed a chance to earn a contract by Rotherham United.

The 29-year-old ex-Newcastle United centre-forward is on trial with the Millers and manager Neil Redfearn says he has shown up well in training.

"He is in good shape, fit and lean, and I like his pedigree. He's played at the level above,," said Redfearn. "He's looked the part so far."

Also training with Rotherham is 22-year-old winger or right-back Adam Drury who began his career with Manchester City.

Redfearn says he is "just having a look" at the youngster for now.

Best is a free agent, while Drury - who had a trial at Redfearn's former club, Leeds United - has been with Bristol Rovers.

Best scored five times in 13 starts during a loan spell with Sheffield Wednesday in 2014.
