STEVE Evans will expect Rotherham United to get double the money his former club, Crawley, had turned down for Lewis Grabban after bids for the 21-goal top scorer.

The Millers manager says three clubs, two from League One and a League Two club, have expressed strong interest in Grabban, with two already having made bids.

Swindon have previously indicated interest in Grabban.

When Evans was at Crawley he had a bid in excess of £200,000 turned down in January by Millers boss Tony Stewart.

“That told me the chairman isn’t looking to cash in and, of course, any bid has to be the right one for the football club,” said Evans whose side are at Aldershot tomorrow.

“Certainly it would have to be a deal more than Crawley had turned down.

“Everyone has their value and if any bid reaches or surpasses that value then we will consider it.”

He added; “It doesn’t mean to say the boy will leave and it’s important we keep good players if we can, but we have to measure up the value of keeping him against what we could do with any funds.”

He said he had already been in talks with Championship clubs over new signings.
