JAMIE Proctor was last night on the verge of a move to Rotherham United.

The 25-year-old striker has agreed a two-year deal at the New York Stadium, with the Millers paying £75,000 up front and more if they are promoted from League One this season.

Proctor spent just 12 months with the Whites after following Phil Parkinson from Bradford City but managed just one goal in 29 appearances.

He was offered back to Bradford in exchange for right-back Stephen Darby in January but eventually went to Carlisle United on loan, helping the Cumbrians to the League Two play-offs.

Rotherham beat off competition from Walsall and Doncaster Rovers to land their man but his departure leaves Wanderers with little competition in attack and just 40 days to go before the season kicks-off.

Parkinson wants two more front men to push Adam Le Fondre and Gary Madine for a first team place this season and could also promote development squad regular Jeff King into the senior group.

The versatile former Droylsden man is expected to join Alex Perry in signing his first professional contract in the coming days along with highly-rated young goalkeeper Jake Turner.

But as fitness testing continues at Wanderers’ Lostock training camp today, Parkinson’s squad is light on numbers after a summer clear-out.

One player whose future has yet to be decided is midfielder Jay Spearing, with no official word coming from the Whites camp on his contract negotiations.

The former Liverpool man has been out of the country for much of the summer and it was expected talks would pick up pace this week.

Out of contract at the end of the month, it is understood the 28-year-old is keen to stay at Bolton but the club’s new pay structure means he is unlikely to be offered the same terms agreed four years ago when he arrived from Anfield to sign a four-year contract.

Meanwhile, ex-Wanderers keeper Jay Lynch has landed a move to Conference new boys AFC Fylde.
