Rotherham have failed in moves for Jerome Thomas and Gary McSheffrey.Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore has revealed he failed in moves for Charlton's Jerome Thomas and Coventry's Gary McSheffrey.
Moore has been actively scouring the transfer market for reinforcements as he looks to bolster his squad and help them climb off the bottom of the table.
Charlton boss Alan Curbishley was unwilling to let Thomas leave on loan, while McSheffrey is now back at Coventry after a successful loan spell at Luton.
"We made an enquiry about Jerome but Alan Curbishley refused to let him out," said Moore.
"It was worth a phone call because he's a player we admire. He's got great pace and I'm sure he could do a job.
"We also tried to get Gary McSheffrey but he's back at Coventry and he's been on the bench for them so that fell through.
"He's another player that we've looked at in the past and he could come in and shake things up a bit."
