Rotherham United manager Steve Evans is still targeting “one or two” additions to his Millers squad after the capture of Danny Hylton and Rob Milsom.

Hylton, who scored 12 goals last season for relegated Aldershot, has signed a two year deal, while Milson, formerly of Aberdeen, has agreed a six month contract with the League One new boys.

“We’re delighted to have agreed a deal for these two boys,” Evans said.

“We’re still one or two away from where we’d like to be.

“We’re trying our best, but we’re not going to overpay for any player, either in terms of transfer fee or wages.

“We’re doing everything within a structure here, and dealing with things in a professional manner.

“I have been in talks with a couple of players from the Far East, and those talks will continue towards the end of the week.

“The chairman, Tony Stewart, has been excellent throughout this, and we have gone about our business in a professional and confidential manner.

“That will continue with the next one or two players who join Rotherham United.

“As I say, I am hopeful or bringing some more faces in, but good players always have plenty of options and it’s important to never forget that.”

n Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov, meanwhile, believes new signing Marc De Val Fernandez has the necessary qualities to cope with life in the English game.

The former Real Madrid B player has signed a two-year deal at Rovers, and Dickov said: “The first thing I told him was that he’s too pretty and he needs to get a few scars.

“He took great delight in telling me he had 23 stitches last season, which was music to my ears!

“He’s got a bit of steel about him, you could see that as soon as he trained with us.

“He wins the ball and, as you’d expect with a Spanish kid, he’s very good when he’s got it.

“It might take him a bit of time to settle but he’s got the potential to be a top, top player.”

n Barnsley boss David Flitcroft hopes defender Martin Cranie will soon sign a new two-year contract at the Oakwell club.

Flitcroft could also hand Luke Steele an improved deal.
