Rotherham striker Adam Le Fondre has hit back at fans criticising him for wanting to leave the club.

The 24-year-old, who has scored 54 goals in 100 games for the Millers, has spoken of his desire to play at a higher level after the club again failed to get out of npower League Two this season.

Le Fondre, who signed from Rochdale in 2009, has attracted criticism for publicly trying to instigate a move away while still having one year left to run on his contract. He wrote on his Twitter account: "Would like to point out to ill informed rotherham fans! That I didn't actually ask for a 3 year! I asked for a 2 year!"

He added: "But u don't pay 150k for some1 an let them walk away after 2 years! So that wernt the reason!


"I'm not blaming all fans just 1s who put rubbish about me!! When they don't know the facts! They could easily just ask me!!"

Le Fondre's 24-goal haul helped Rotherham maintain a play-off spot from August all the way until March, but they took just seven points from their last eight matches and finished ninth.
