Now that Millwall Boss Neil Harris has decided what players were not going to be offered new contracts and released? The work now begins on the targets that he wants to bring in it is thought that he has 4.
Preliminary discussions have taken place with Mark Beevers & Chris Taylor. The latest with Beevers is he is looking at other offers that he has received. Chris Taylor has returned to Blackburn his contract runs out at the end of this month it remains to be seen with a new manager coming in if he has a future at Ewood Park.
Just before the playoff final it was public knowledge that Sheffield Wednesday was going to make a £2million bid for Lee Gregory at the time of penning this report no bid has come in. Millwall will have one of the biggest budgets next season Division 1 , Neil Harris has said that next season the Lions will come back much stronger . The minimum requirement will be a top 6 finish.
Apart from any new signings which will come in I reckon that Jamie Philpott & Kris Twardek along with Alfie Pavy will make a real impression next season also Sid Nelson will be looking to get back in the first team alongside Webster if Beevers departs.
I am not sure about the future of Keeper David Forde for next season, assuming that Archer does not go anywhere next season & I suspect he won’t be. Then I can’t see Forde getting back in the team, with his exclusion from the Irish Squad for the Euro’s, I suspect his international career has come to an end. Can’t imagine he will want to carry on warming the bench at the den.
2016/17 Fixtures: The fixture for next season will be released on June 22nd.
Also the pitch at the den is being re-laid for next season.
