ROTHERHAM United are set to find out today whether defender Claude Davis will join their League Two promotion push.

The Millers, currently two points shy of the automatic promotion berths with two matches in hand, have spoken several times to the Crawley Town centre-half in the last week. The 33-year-old, formerly of Sheffield United, has not played for the Reds since December 29 because of a knee injury.

“Claude has had six or seven good clubs wanting to sign him but he told me yesterday (Saturday) it is down to two, and Rotherham are one of them,” confirmed Millers boss Steve Evans, who watched Northampton’s victory over Burton Albion on Saturday.

Davis, who still lives in Sheffield, worked with Evans at Crawley last season. Rotherham face competition for the Jamaican international’s signature from Bradford City. Should Rotherham miss out on Davis, The Star understands they will turn their attentions to Walsall captain Andy Butler.
