Ex-Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio wants to become the new manager of Championship outfit Rotherham - two years after being sacked from his position at the Stadium of Light.

The Press Association is reporting that Di Canio’s camp has contacted Rotherham about their possibility of becoming Steve Evans’ successor at the South Yorkshire club.

Di Canio has been eager to get back into front-line management ever since leaving Sunderland, yet has remained out of work.

However, the Millers have indicated they have no interest in the 47-year-old, who has a promotion on his CV during his time at Swindon.

Di Canio left Sunderland after a whirlwind 13 games at the Stadium of Light where, after initially keeping them in the Premier League and famously masterminding a 3-0 Tyne-Wear derby success over Newcastle in the 2012-13 campaign, things turned sour the following season.

After a dressing room revolt following a defeat at West Brom, Di Canio departed after taking just one point from the opening five Premier League outings.

The Millers are on the look-out for a new manager after Evans surprisingly left his post on Monday after a success-laden three and a half years at the club.
