Rotherham United manager Steve Evans is keen to continue his summer shopping spree after sealing a deal for striker Danny Hylton.

Hylton, the former Aldershot Town striker, has been strongly linked with the Millers after leaving the financially stricken Shots.

A deal to bring Hylton to the New York Stadium is believed to have been agreed but, with Millers manager Evans currently on holiday, it may not be confirmed for some time.

Millers manager Evans, who has already signed Joe Skarz, Richard Brindley and Adam Collin this summer, is continuing to scout for players who are capable of playing in League One next term.

“Subject to final discussions and medicals I have every reason to believe a few players will join us,” Evans said before his holiday.

“They are young and hungry players, that will join an already talented squad we have in place.

“Tony Stewart, the chairman, has once again been very supportive and he is just incredible.

“It is a great time to be a Miller.”

Hylton made the headlines last May when he received an eight-match ban for two counts of racial abuse in Aldershot’s League Two game at Barnet.

He finished the season with 12 goals in 32 goals for Town, and scored a hat-trick against the Millers in the FA Cup before later being sent off.

Rotherham’s new signings will meet their team-mates for the first time on Wednesday, when Evans’ charges report back for pre-season training.

n Barnsley’s latest signing, meanwhile, has revealed that a chat with manager David Flitcroft convinced him to turn down other clubs and sign terms at Oakwell.

Dale Jennings, the former Bayern Munich youngster, has signed a three-year deal.

“I spoke to the manager and the assistant and they outlined the plans they had for me,” Jennings said.

“I felt Barnsley was the right club to take me further.

“It’s a great opportunity for me to play football back in England where I want to be, with a club that has great plans for this season.

“I can’t expect to turn up and play every week. I will have to work hard and do well for the team to earn the opportunity.”
