ROTHERHAM United manager Steve Evans is believed to be lining up a bid for a young attacking player.

Evans says he is going to have talks with chairman Tony Stewart as any move for the player would involve a fee.

The Millers boss told the club’s website that success over such a move would depend on whether the club want to sell him and if the player can be persuaded to leave by the lure of first team football.

Evans declined to reveal his target but said he was at a ‘big club’ and that he recently saw him score for his country. A youngster who did that recently was Manchester United’s Robbie Brady for the Republic of Ireland Under 21s.

Meanwhile, Evans has dismissed any further interest in the Torquay attacking midfielder Eunan O’Kane. He was believed to be one of the several names under consideration but the Millers boss won’t look to pursue that one.
