Report: Redfearn considering signing ex-Leeds free agent Simon Lenighan for Rotherham

Rotherham are linked with signing Simon Lenighan.

Neil Redfearn is seeking to leave no stone unturned in his efforts to take Rotherham United forward.

The former Leeds boss is searching for his first win since taking over last month, and travels to Elland Road this weekend hoping to upset his old club and ex-Millers boss Steve Evans.

He has signed Brandon Barker on loan from Manchester City, Harry Toffolo from Norwich, and Stephen Kelly and Leon Best as free agents, but is still considering further adding to the squad.

A name he is also considering is former Leeds United trainee and free agent Simon Lenighan, report the Rotherham Advertiser.

Redfearn knows Lenighan from his time at Leeds, and he is on trial with the Millers in an attempt to earn a deal.

Lenighan has been playing with non-league Frickley Town, and has played for Alfreton and Harrogate Town since leaving Leeds.

Now 21, he is hoping to get his career back on track, and the opportunity alone to train with the Championship side is a gret chance for him.

Rotherham are also eyeing a more experienced player, former Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt who The Star report could even be signed ahead of the Leeds fixture on Saturday.
