With Millwall confirming that three bids had been turned down for top goalscorer Lee Gregory, it’s now been confirmed by Rotherham that they were the only bidding club.

With various leaks and social media game playing the other week, including the false claim that Gregory had put in a written transfer request, Rotherham’s interest in the player was well known, and speaking to the Sheffield Star their chairman Tony Stewart confirmed the details of the bids and also that their interest in the player was now over.

Good news for Millwall and manager Neil Harris as they didn’t want Gregory to go anywhere, so now it remains to be seen if Rotherham change their mind, or with sums being known, anybody else now comes in for him and tries to tempt our hand.

‘We offered £1.4 million for Lee Gregory. We started at £900,000 and went to £1.2m and then £1.4m. Still Millwall wanted more. We went back to the manager and his team to see what they thought. The manager said £1.2m should have got him. I am a facilitator. I would have gone back, put in higher bids and got those players if the manager had wanted me to, but he told me what their value was in his eyes and we had reached that. We like to get what we feel is value for money. It`s great to have a manager who thinks the same and doesn`t just want to spend a chairman`s money for the sake of it.’

With Gregory opening his account for the summer in the trip to Bromley on Saturday, clearly it hasn’t effected his focus which is the important thing.

And now we hope nobody else gets tempted.
