Rotherham United could land a Premier League youngster this week, but only if Steve Evans senses his desire join the Millers.
Boss Evans says the top-flight outfit are happy to sanction a loan deal and that they will inform their player in the next couple of days.
He warned: “If there’s hesitation, I’m not travelling around the country to persuade him to come and play for Rotherham United. He ought to travel round the country to sign for us. That’s what should happen.”
The Millers are also in talks with two other clubs - one in the Premier League and another in the Championship - as they look to strengthen their squad.
Meanwhile, Evans has called on referees to be forced to publicly justify their decisions after his side were denied a clear penalty by Darren Bond in their 2-1 loss at Nottingham Forest.
“It’s like the old Russia, isn’t it? It’s like a secret society. You can’t get an answer,” he complained.
“I’m sure Mike Riley (Professional Game Match Officials Board chief) and David Allison, the head of referees at the Football League, can fight for a system where referees can explain key match decisions to the media.
“The days are gone when they can drive off in a car and leave people behind them to pick up the bits.”
