Rotherham's League One rivals Portsmouth are keeping tabs on Frecklington's situation with Pompey boss Kenny Jackett an admirer of the player having worked with him during his short time in charge of the Millers.

Mansfield boss Steve Evans is also keen on being reunited with Frecklington as he looks to improve his squad to maintain their push for promotion from League Two this season.

Frecklington played a vital role under Evans in helping Rotherham to successive promotions from League Two to the Championship.

The 32-year-old's hometown club Lincoln are also looking to bring the midfielder back to the club where he started his career as Danny Cowley sees his quality and experience as improving his current squad.
