Rotherham boss Paul Warne hopes to sign on-loan Ipswich Town striker Kieffer Moore permanently.

The Millers manager is keen to tie Moore to a permanent deal at some stage after the 6ft 5in frontman’s blistering start to his AESSEAL New York Stadium career, which has seen him hit four goals in two League One games.

Rotherham have taken Moore from parent club Ipswich until at least January and Warne said: “I think certain players suit certain clubs at certain times and Kieffer is a typical Rotherham attacker.

“I think the fans really appreciate what he does and how hard he works for someone so big. He looks after himself amazingly well so he is right up my street on that score.

“He is someone I would like to have longer at the club going forward.”

The exploits of the centre-forward – one of eight Millers new recruits this summer – will have alerted other clubs to his talents, a fact acknowledged by Warne.

But the boss added: “I’d like to think he wants to be here and we could put something together that would attract him.

“If Ipswich are not looking to sell until January then it doesn’t matter what I offer because while he is scoring and in the shop window they will be in no rush.

“If I could put a bid in that would attract him in a few weeks’ time, then I would. I know we are the only ones who could buy him before January because of the rules.

“If the player wants to stay and everything was right, I would like to keep him. I don’t have to do it this window, so that is not an immediate rush.”

Earlier this month, Town boss Mick McCarthy suggested the big striker could still have a future at Town, after he scored a hat-trick in Rotherham’s 5-0 thumping of Southend.

“Thank God we’ve got our strikers scoring because otherwise the fans would be screaming blue murder and saying ‘get him back’,” joked McCarthy.

“We’ve sent him out to help him to help us. We hope he gets better and we can see him as a first team player. If not then we’ll sell him for more than we bought him for.”
