Lee Camp says every player is under threat at Rotherham United as new boss Neil Redfearn prepares to enter the loan market.

After three matches in charge, Redfearn has seen enough to know his squad need strengthening if they are to survive in the Championship for another season.

With the Millers second from bottom in the table, goalkeeper Camp admitted: “We’re all vulnerable.

“If people come in, there’s competition for places. When you’re not winning, everyone is vulnerable, from the back to the front.”

Rotherham look a more solid, fluent side since Redfearn took over 16 days ago, but injuries have prevented him playing his first-choice side since his arrival and he is still seeking his win.

“It’s been three games in six days and we haven’t got the biggest squad and that’s tough for anybody,” he said. “I have been here for two weeks and it feels like a month!

“I know that if we keep putting things in place and we keep trying to get more quality in and we try and get more competition at both ends of the pitch, then we can start getting points.”

The Millers manager could bring in as many as four players but isn’t tying his recruitment drive to a specific figure.

“We have looked at most things,” he said, “It’s just a case of identifying the targets we’re trying to bring in and getting them over the line. You have to look at the ones you can bring in so it is difficult to put a number on it.”

Rotherham have changed their structure since the departure of previous boss Steve Evans and Redfearn now works on new signings with a technical board headed by club chairman Tony Stewart.

Camp says any new arrivals will be quickly made to feel at home.

“If the manager feels fit to add what he feels is necessary, and hopefully the club support him, then the players who come in will be welcomed and be part of the squad,” the 31-year-old said,

“Loans are the manager’s decision, that’s not down to me. That’s not for me to say. Al I can say is that, as a player, I can vouch for my teammates. We work hard to try to improve every day and to move the club and the team forward.

“If the manager feels he wants to strengthen and recruit, that’s his call. It’s completely down to him and the football club to do that.”
