BEN Pringle has decided that joining Millwall wouldn't be "the right move for him at the moment", according to Rotherham United's assistant manager.

Paul Raynor, who is right-hand man to Steve Evans at the Yorkshire club, confirmed the Lions had held talks with the winger.

NewsAtDen understands that Millwall offered the 25-year-old a substantial wage increase but he turned it down.

And Raynor, speaking to BBC Sheffield, said: "A fee was agreed with Millwall. They met our valuation so Ben went to have a chat with Ian Holloway and the guys down there.

"But they couldn't agree personal terms so at this precise moment, he is a Rotherham United player.

"We've not actively tried to get Ben to move elsewhere. He's very much a Rotherham player and we'll see where that goes.

"Obviously he was sought after by Millwall, the fee was acceptable to us but he went down there and feels it isn't the right move for him at the moment.

"We'll wait and see where that goes. We're only at the very start of the transfer window and we're not actively looking to get rid of anybody.

"Ben is a player who I'm sure a lot of people will like."

    Probably put off by our league position and a wage decrease should the inevitable (relegation) happen. Gutted. He's exactly what we need. The board should have pulled out all the stops because you ain't getting better than him for 175k.
