Ronnie Moore is frustrated at a lack of activity in the transfer market.Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore has revealed his frustration after missing out on a series of transfer targets.
With The Millers struggling at the foot of the Championship table, Moore is desperate to add firepower to his shot-shy attack.
However, bringing the right player to the club is proving a real difficulty.
"We had Neil Shipperley and Dougie Freedman watched at Crystal Palace in midweek, but they both had a clause in their contract that said if they went to The Premiership, their wages would be doubled so we can't even pay their tax compared to what our highest earner is getting,'' Moore told the club's official website.
"I spoke to Millwall's Neil Harris at our hotel on Tuesday with permission from the club.
''He had been told he could come out on a free but that has now changed and they want a fee.
''We were close to getting Leicester's Trevor Benjamin, he would have given us a bit of pace. We thought the deal would be done earlier this week but he was on the bench for Leicester in midweek.''
