Rotherham United should push for Premier League prospect Leeds United turned down

Why Rotherham should look at signing Milos Veljkovic from Tottenham.

Milos Veljkovic is available for loan from Tottenham Hotspur, but a recent proposed deal to take him to Leeds United hit a snag.

The Whites pulled out of a deal over Spurs' insistence the versatile star gets regular playing time, as reported TeamTalk, having previously been keen on a short term loan.

Veljkovic was an under-20 World Cup winner with Serbia earlier this summer, and has real potential but just needs regular football.

He was on course to get that last season at Charlton Athletic before going down with an injury in only his third appearance for the Addicks.

He would still be a good addition for Championship sides, and one which should strongly consider taking a look is Steve Evans' Rotherham United.

The Millers have had a disappointing start to the campaign, losing their opening two matches, and could do with more strengthening before the transfer window closes.

They already have one promising midfield talent from Tottenham in for the season, Grant Ward, who had a particularly impressing pre-season.

Re-uniting him with Veljkovic could be good for both players, while the young Serbian would add depth in two key positions, able to play in central midfield and centre-back.

As for the insistence from Spurs he gets regular playing time, Rotherham could call their bluff, with good intentions, and if it does not work out then it is no loss should the Premier League side look to recall him.

Their gain could be Leeds' loss, but if it is not the Millers then there remains a strong chance Veljkovic will be playing in the Championship this coming season, the question is simply where, and relegation threatened Rotherham should act to ensure it is with them.
