The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

ROTHER­HAM United are close to se­cur­ing an ex­ten­sion of Grant Ward’s loan from Tot­ten­ham, ac­cord­ing to man­ager Neil Red­fearn.

The 21-year-old mid­fielder, who had a spell with Coven­try to­wards the end of last sea­son, joined the Millers on a six-month deal in July.

“We want to keep him,” said Red­fearn.“Spurs like the idea that he’s de­vel­op­ing with us. He’s com­ing on.

“He’s de­vel­op­ing into a real as­set and a top-class player.

“It’s just sort­ing out the fine de­tails of the agree­ment.

“Spurs have been good with us. The sooner we can sort it out, the more set­tled Grant can be.”
