Millwall in battle with Brighton to sign MK Dons' Williams

MILLWALL have agreed a fee with MK Dons for Shaun Williams.

Lions boss Ian Holloway opened talks with the League One club over a deal for the 27-year-old after being impressed by his performance against Wigan in the FA Cup last week.

But Championship rivals Brighton have also had an offer accepted, and the player will now discuss personal terms with both clubs before deciding on his final destination.

Reports on the south coast suggest Albion want Williams to play as a centre back, whereas Millwall see him in a midfield role.

Holloway and chief executive Andy Ambler return from club's training camp in Portugal this evening and will try to convince the Dons' Player of the Year that his future lies at The Den.

    Another test for IH wether he can persuade Williams that his future is best served at Millwall. Hope he can work his magic.

    Ollie's presence definitely had a positive effect on the officials last week; be interesting to see if the 'magic' works on potential transfer targets.

    Ollie will have a big say, but the wages paid will have a bigger say. Thats the way it is.

    There are several factors he will need to take in, the first being what position does "HE" want to play, the second is being signed to bolster a squad or to too play first team football and then the money, I would think that the seagulls can pay more, but there fans are always out sung by us when we are down there also we nearly always get a result even when we give the lead away near the end.

    Come to the Den Shaun you know it makes sense and get a couple of good games under your belt and as they say the rest is History,

    It's either playing in his preferred role of attacking midfielder week in, week out for Holloway's Millwall and getting vital Championship experience given he is 27 now or sitting on Brighton's bench as back-up for the Centre Back position. Whats your hunger and desire like for making the step up to the second tier for regular football Shaun?

    We'll Brighton fill their ground most of the time, get over double what we get in, and have big money backing, so if it comes down to personnel terms they'll be on a different planet to us. Still if it's not to be we move on. I don't get how he's 27,so he's been around a while, most if not all of us have never heard of him,or noticed him before, and suddenly there's a mini rush for him. Straaaaange

    This is where Ollies CV will come in to play.
    Hopefully Shaun Williams will see what Ollie achieved at QPR, Blackpool & Palace.
    Combine that with Ollies enthusiasm and surely it's a no brainer.
    Wages will obviously come into it, however we've got DJ Jazzy Cambell, who will no doubt help him earn a few extra quid on the side (if you now what I mean!!!)

    this all bores down to whether he cares more about playing every week or money ? i hope it's the first of the two tbh he would fit in well here! and get regular footy i don't think he will get that at the turd pushers!

    On a slightly different side. I've notice that N'Guessan is up for loan and a permanent move away from Swindon. Didn't last long did it.

    I would be happily shocked if he chooses us over Brighton.
    Even with Holloway I can't see it. Maybe if he was early twentys but at 27 I think he will take the safe bet.

    At 27 I think he will choose Brighton purely for the money factor and Brighton looking more likely for promotion than us. We shall see and yes Holloway must be a factor in our favour but I will be surprised to see him in a wall shirt.

    If he knows what's best for him Millwall FC is the place to be. Always plenty of fans to cheer you, no matter where MFC play.

    Our main hope is that he prefers to play as an attacking midfielder rather than a central defender which is where Brighton want to play him. If so, its up to IH to persuade him that he will play him in his preferred position if he signs for us.

    Every time this has happened before ie a more fashionable club come calling there has only ever been one outcome and we all know what that is! Brighton can prob offer more money and may convince him they are geared up for the prem, and u cant really argue. So if olly can pull this one off got to say he's a legend!!

    Wage budget through the roof already, we don't need a new midfielder and if Shittu + Lowry play like they did vs Ipswich for the rest of the season and we have Robbo and Beevers as backup why do we need him?

    When it comes to a battle of wages and personal terms we loose out. Think Wood. Went for Leicester for the money even though he sits on the bench. Cost of living in London doesn't help us either. Don't over pay. He either wants to come to us or he doesn't. He shouldn't come just for the money.

      @Glasshalffull: If he doesn't come he is no great loss he's 27 and still only playing in the 3rd tier, never heard of him before so really not bothered let him sit on their bench counting his money.

    We need Millwall players Holloway obviously rates him. ??????? if he comes OK there are more out there that will buy into this revolution. How many of you have felt this positivve about our club in the last 12 months. Kenny undersood us and moved on we will all be greatful for what he achived. Holloway to take us forward. Play offs a bit out of reach??? I've just had a bet with a mate, we will not lose another game this season, are you with me?
