The Millers have brought in Hakeeb Adelakun on loan from Bristol City while Carlton Morris was recalled from his loan spell by Norwich whilst Millers' young striker Joshua Kayode has joined League Two Carlisle on loan.

Warne's side are doing just fine at the minute, as four wins on the bounce has seen them surge to the top of the League One.

And that means, barring any unforeseen changes, the boss is happy with his situation.

“I would be happy as long as we didn't have any issues,” he said.

“If a couple of injuries didn't go the way we think or something might happen in training and we have to react.

“If injuries keep progressing the way they are and I don't have any issues I foresee then I would be happy.

“You have also got to allow for the unexpected. I run a small squad here and they are a close group which is worth something in my opinion, so if I don't need to change I won't.”

If Warne does feel he needs to step into the market, he says that his club's position at the top of the pile could help.

“If I was trying to get a player in it is easier at the top of the league than when you are bottom of the league,” he said.

“But it is a bit of an oxymoron because players might think, 'Why do you want need me'. “Unless I was to get a striker in who was top notch they'd be thinking, 'Well I am not going to get in in front of your three'.

“It is pointless. It's like at Tottenham, if you sign there as soon as Harry Kane is fit he's playing. It's pointless.

“But if we needed to strengthen, especially a loan, I think we could.

“We are in a good place, the team is OK, I don't need to rock it.

“With new signings it takes about 10 games to get it, so if I have a fully fit squad here there is no point me bringing extra players in and not being able to get the best out of them until March or April – it's pointless.

“But there is a bit of time, if I have an issue there are a couple of players on my radar. At the moment I am pretty happy.”
