The transfer-listed trio, all signed by Evans last summer, were told they were free to find new clubs at the end of last season, along with defender Nicky Hunt, who agreed to a release on Thursday.

Sharps spent the end of last term on loan at Burton, Ainsworth was farmed out to Aldershot and Odejayi made just 17 starts as the Millers won promotion to League One.

"We have three players that need to find new clubs if they want to play football," Evans told the club's official website.

"My squad will be strengthened in every area but particularly in wide areas and in the striker department.

"In fairness to the three lads we have placed on the transfer list there has been good interest in each of them and I would think their respective agents are talking to those clubs now.

"What they decide to do is up to them but it will have no bearing at all on what players we bring to the Millers."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
