Rotherham manager Paul Warne is expecting a January bidding war for Ipswich loanee Kieffer Moore.

Responding to Mick McCarthy’s suggestion it would take a ‘bonkers offer’ to prise Moore away from Ipswich full-time in January, Warne insisted he and Rotherham chairman Tony Stewart have yet to make a bid for their in-form loanee and is unsure of the Blues’ valuation of the striker.

Warne also expects serious competition from a number of clubs for the League One leading scorer’s signature.

“I don’t know what a bonkers bid is for Kieffer,” Warne told The Star. “I don’t know if a bonkers bid is £200,000, £500,000. I just don’t know.

“I haven’t had that conversation with the chairman (Tony Stewart) to see how far he wants to go. I presume there will be a few bidding and it will be open.

“It’s hard to translate what bonkers means in figures, but I would like to think we will try to keep him.

“Obviously we would like to bid and keep him here, but not if it goes unrealistic. If a club come in and bid over a million pounds, then I can’t imagine us being involved. But then again we might be.”
