Report: Rotherham United interested in signing ex-Leeds man Rodolph Austin

Leeds United shocked most observers when they deemed Rodolph Austin to be surplus to requirements.

The Yorkshire Evening Post suggests that Rudolph Austin is interesting Rotherham United, after his release from Leeds United.

The Whites shocked most of their supporters when they announced that Austin would not be handed a new deal at Elland Road last week, but it seems that he won't be without a club for too long.

The Jamaican midfielder has impressed at Championship level throughout his career and Rotherham are believed to be hoping to convince him to move to the New York Stadium.

The Millers narrowly avoided relegation this season and they apparently feel that Austin could enhance the quality in their midfield ranks considerably.

Blessed with power and tenacity, Austin would fit in well with the tactics that Steve Evans has deployed at Rotherham and he would be a high-profile addition for the Yorkshire club to make.

They may face a fight if they are to convince him to join, though, as HITC understands that Celtic and Burnley are interested in the central midfielder.

Celtic feel that Austin could be a good back-up choice for them, as Ronny Deila looks to add even more quality to his squad.
