Sheffield Wednesday could face competition from League One sides Fleetwood Town and MK Dons if they firm up their interest in Scottish hotshot Ross Stewart.

The Ross County forward is attracting a lot of attention south of the border, but a £1million price tag is likely to deter many suitors as clubs tighten their belts.

The Owls have been busy in the transfer market, while Joey Barton's Fleetwood have also been linked with Stewart.

Rotherham are one of a handful of clubs linked with Liam Miller, the Liverpool Under-23 striker.

The Canadian international, who can also play wide, is also interesting Stoke City, QPR and Millwall.

Rotherham boss Paul Warne is closing in on a signing, with Newcastle midfielder Dan Barlaser on his wishlist. Warne said: "I'm hopeful of getting an incoming this week."

By the time Rotherham host Norwich City on October 17, the Canaries might be without star midfielder Todd Cantwell, with Leeds United still weighing up a £15m bid for the highly-rated player.

More Premier League interest in Championship stars comes from Manchester United, with further news today that they could swoop for Watford winger Ismaila Sarr. Watch that one run and run until the end of the window.

Elsewhere, Celtic may miss out on QPR winger Bright Osayi-Samuel with the player set to be offered a new deal by the Championship club.

Mark Warburton confirmed the Nigerian is in discussions with director of football Les Ferdinand over a new contract, with Celtic having scouted the player ahead of a potential move this window.

There's been interest from Glasgow in Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson as well, this time from Steven Gerrard's Rangers. PNE are still waiting to see if the Ibrox club come back in with an improvement on the bid of £1.5million they lodged last month.

Preston themselves are in the market for a striker as they look to the MLS for potential recruitment before the international transfer window closes on Monday.
