Rotherham assistant: Millwall move "not right" for Pringle

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.

    Offered more money, met the price! What do people want Wall to do? We are an unfashionable club and not everyone buys into it! Move on and stop moaning.

      @thecolumbusblock:
      He refused to discuss personal terms there. Wants to move on and is out of contract at end of season. They want to keep him, he is just too good for them as they will probably be one of the teams who go down I reckon. Quality winger who will sign for a bigger club than us.

    I think everyone is forgetting that we always did speak to & meet players in previous transfer windows and more than likely many players did turn us down on several occasions. It's just they're getting published a bit more this time round. We are a small club and realistically who ever we try sign, if there's other clubs sniffing around the player will choose them over us.

    Just the 1 point from me.
    Isn't that what Holloway is supposed to specialise in? Talking to players, selling the vision and the club, that was meant to be one of his strongest traits, he can talk any player into coming once we get them in a room and agree a fee.

    More than likely to do with the abuse he received when they turned us over down the den.. Seem to remember him spitting his dummy out at the crowd, that could play a big part in his decision

    I actually like the fact he didn't just come to Millwall for an increase in wages says a lot about his character that makes me like him even more ,,,,, unless he is holding out for more money in which case jog on greedy b******* . Confusing post I know
