Barnsley manager Mark Robins has refused to rule out a possible bid to bring some of his former players at Rotherham to Oakwell.

Robins was unveiled as Simon Davey's successor this week after the two clubs agreed a compensation package for the ex-Millers boss, his assistant John Breckin, first-team coach Steve Taylor and goalkeeping coach Nick Daws.

Robins, who confirmed the Oakwell board will back him if he feels reinforcements are needed, said: "I might do, I might not. If anybody is available who I feel can improve our team and our squad I will always be interested whether they are from Rotherham or whichever club."

He added: "I'm sure money would be made available for new players as long as it fits in with our parameters.

"I'll always be interested in any player who could improve us, I'll be looking to make us better and if I'm not doing that I believe I'm not doing my job properly."
