Hull City striker Aaron Wilbraham is adamant he will not be joining Rotherham United.Hull City striker Aaron Wilbraham is adamant he will not be joining Rotherham United.
Wilbraham has been told he can leave The KC Stadium by Tigers boss Peter Taylor but the forward is refusing to concede his Hull career is finished.
The 25-year-old only joined the club from Stockport County last summer but mustered just two goals in 20 appearances.
He undertook a loan spell at Oldham Athletic and has now been linked with League One outfit Rotherham.
But Wilbraham is determined to prove his worth to Taylor and has scotched talk of a possible move to Millmoor.
"I've only just got back from holiday so I'm not sure what's happening but there's no way I want to go to Rotherham or any other club," Wilbraham told the Hull Daily Mail.
"I've not spoken to anyone."
Though The Millers have been strongly linked with a swoop for Wilbraham, Rotherham boss Mick Harford was coy regarding the talk of a bid.
"I'm not saying whether it's Aaron Wilbraham or not," commented Harford, after admitting he is interested in two strikers.
"I hope to sort something out in the next 24 hours."
