Jonson Clarke-Harris To Leave Rotherham United In January?

Football News

Jonson Clarke-Harris missed out on huge chunks of Rotherham’s Championship campaign last year as a result of being benched or loaned out to Milton Keynes Dons and Doncaster Rovers finding the net just three times across both spells.

Clarke-Harris however, did score for Rotherham last season, four times in fact. Most notably a screamer against Leeds United in an emphatic 2-1 victory.

Fans' Favourite

This season is a much different story. The former Oldham forward has been one of the most consistent players so far in the 2015/16 Championship campaign, scoring five goals - three of them from outside of the box.

New Rotherham United manager Neil Redfearn has recognised Clarke-Harris' dependability and unlike Steve Evans, has favoured him in the starting eleven. Redfearn labelled the 21-year-old striker as a ‘beast’ and said he would even fit into a Premier League squad. However, with the Millers currently struggling, questions are being raised as to whether the Leicester-born striker will be snapped up by another club.

Lack of service

The Millers are sitting 23rd in the Championship with just four victories so far this season. Partly due to defensive errors but also, it seems as though they lack creativity in midfield and fail to create enough clear chances in front of goal.

This, of course, does not help Clarke-Harris' endeavour for goals and a lack of decent service could force the striker elsewhere. Most of his goals seem to be individually made, terrorising defences with fast paced dribbling and unleashing powerful longshots. An example of this was in the fixture against Bristol City where in the ninth minute he curled a powerful shot into the far right-hand corner from outside the box. The question is, will he want to move to a club where he will receive more support and hence get more clear cut goal scoring opportunities? Arguably the opportunities he deserves and should be getting.

Other clubs eyeing Clarke-Harris

Rival Championship clubs may well be monitoring Clarke-Harris' progress with the Millers. There's no doubt he has proved himself to be more than capable at this level and arguably may fit into a squad higher up in the league table.

Will the seemingly happy Clarke-Harris stay at Rotherham in their push to survive the drop or will he be snapped up in the January transfer window by another club with an offer too tempting for him to resist?
