Scramble for free Rotherham midfielder?

Norwich City could be involved in a transfer scramble for midfielder Martin Woods after the Rotherham midfielder exercised his right to become a “free man”.
The 21-year-old had an escape clause in his contract allowing him to leave Millmoor should Rotherham be relegated - an option he involved over the weekend.
And that could spark a race for the Scot's signature, with the Canaries, Wolves and newly-promoted Scunthorpe United all waiting for his next move.
“Martin has taken up the option and has informed us that he will be leaving,” said Rotherham boss and former Canaries striker Mark Robins. “He's decided he wants to move away and good luck to him.
“We offered him a deal and there's nothing else we could have done because our hands are tied.”

Robins admitted he had tried and failed to persuade Woods to stay at Millmoor.
“There are clubs interested in him and we will just have to wait and see what develops,” he added.
