Exclusive: Millwall pursuit of Gregory entering crucial stage

MILLWALL'S pursuit of Halifax Town hotshot Lee Gregory is entering a critical phase.

Having seen bids of £100,000 and £150,000 both rejected for the 31-goal striker, the Lions have this week returned with a third offer.

But NewsAtDen understands that there are four other clubs in the mix for the 25-year-old - and two of them have trumped Millwall's proposed fee.

Championship rivals Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town have both emerged as contenders to sign Gregory.

Recently-relegated Barnsley have made a bid, while League One side MK Dons are also in the hunt.

The Lions, who have been told that an offer of around £250,000 would be accepted, will now consider making a fourth approach.

Gregory is believed to be enthused by the prospect of playing under Ian Holloway and has no preference as to whether he stays in Yorkshire or moves south.

Asked about the club's transfer business, chief executive Andy Ambler said: "We're trying to do the best deals we can for the football club.

"We have our targets and we want to get the right players in for the manager.

"The chairman is backing him to do that but ultimately if players out-price themselves they won't become Millwall players.

"We want players to join us if they believe in the direction we are going in and they want to fight for the cause, not jut to come and earn good money."

    Yet again our cheap attitude and reluctance to spend any money whatsoever on quality has led to other clubs getting ahead of us and now we're going to miss out on a possible 20 goal a season striker at a bargain price. They'll happily spend £250k in wages for a load of 35 year old has beens who play 5 games all season between them though.

      @jacke94:
      How do you know he is quality? And there's just as much chance of him being a 5 goal a season striker as there is him being a 20 goal a season striker. Infact I'd say there's a lot more chance of the former, happening.

        You've only got to watch his goals on youtube and look at his goals per game ratio. We took the risk on Morison and that paid off. Not necessarily about this specific player but it's about a statement of intent and a rare show of positivity to put ourselves out there and say that we're going to go out and sign the target we want without letting other teams outbid us and take them on the back of our scouting work. Clearly sounds like you're missing the cautious, risk-free Jackett era. In that case let's give Rob Hulse a call.

    Every player has his price, we cannot go spending over the odds for players, especially ones unproven at this level. If we do manage to get Gregory all well and good, if not move on to the next target.

    if Holloway really really wanted him, he would go get him- you can't seriously believe that we can't afford to pay 250k ffs!

    Holloway won't over-pay players, which is exactly what we need after the mass of over-paid and under-committed players we've had down The Den the last few seasons!

      @Longfield Lion: Sorry, but I don't see what we have done wrong. We make a bid that we think is right, they want more, we go back with a higher offer, and they want more....its called negotiation. Ever tried selling a car? If anyone thinks we are the only club with scouts in lower league, dream on, and if I was the players agent, I would advise my player to hold out for the best deal, its happens, get over it.

    I have to agree with jacke on this one, bidding 250k - 300k is not a huge risk in terms of transfer fees these days, I don't see us paying big money for a name striker so why not pay this for someone who looks as though he has potential and if he does well could sell on for 3 times that! We will end up with the likes of Tyson and Hulse again if we don't get in there first and stop bidding stupid amounts

    It is always going to be a bit of a gamble going after non league players, but in this day and age 250K is not very much for a prolific goal scorer. Do we expect the teams to give their best players away. We cannot afford a proven championship striker so 250K has got to be a safe gamble, I know it is still not peanuts for a club like ours but honestly do we really think we are going to get anyone who is any good for less?

  7. Once again we do it the millwall way. Did anyone really think they was going to even accept 100k in the first place. Why not go and offer the asking price straight away as now we're bringing more and more teams into it. It's a joke, just hope ambler and Berylson are happy spending 15k a week on old wage thiefs!

    For those of you who never saw the great Alf Wood play, he was a legend.
    We signed him in 1972 for 100k.
    Yes, 1972.
    Now we're trying to get a striker in for the same money. Problem is that 44 years have gone by.
    Pay the 250k and get him signed up.

    So basically the headline should be "Millwall set to miss out on Gregory #Bottler's"

    It's disappointing that we're not on the verge of signing the striker we need but is this guy really the answer?! I recall a certain Josh McQuoid being prolific in league 1 for a while - we spent big on him and he was utter pony!! I won't lose any sleep over this - Gregory is no Harry Kane or Chris Wood!

          @TheBermondseyBomber: Wood and Kane wouldn't sign for us now even if we had the money. We've scouted Gregory and then go in with a 100k offer. Then 150k. Now we've upped it again. Would have been prudent to go in with 200k from the outset, as that's obviously what we're prepared to pay and what they want. The days of secret deals are over. Everyone knows everyone else's business and it's better to snap up someone who is of interest, pay the asking price if it's realistic before everyone else charges in. The disparity in the offers is probably what collectively, sacks of s*** like Hoyte, Smith, Shittu etc. are drawing weekly.

And yes he does look quite good. Even at his age, some players develop late. Where I disagree is that 250k is not a lot of money to Millwall. Together with his wages it is a major investment for us. We obviously have a view on how much he is worth to us. We also don't know which other players we are after and how he fits in with the budget allowed for others. I'm just glad we are not looking to add more has beens.

    Everyone needs to calm down about this guy, he is prolific yes, but in the conference. As far as the Chamionship is concerned he is untested and therefore has no record wort talking about. Sure he is worth a punt, but if prices go above £200K I gotta say that it is questionable if he is good value compared to the risk. £250K is not a lot compared to todays market, but todays markets is out of control and teams are slipping into debt left, right and centre and the expectation is that more will follow Portsmouth into administration due to their willingness to take stupid risks. People really need a reality check, remember Josh McQuiod was prolific in League 1 and look how he turned out.

    With at least two other clubs interested ,this is an auction,so if we bid 250.000 straight off the other clubs bid 300.000 then we bid more then they bid more,so by going in with what what you are prepared to pay maximum we just inflate the price,so the other clubs and millwall know what they want to pay so we all have to be a bit cagey other wise we are going to pay over the odds,so lets leave the money side to olle and ambler and go from there .if we get him all well and good if not move on,with gates.of 10,000 we dont have much clout money wise and before people come in and say unless we spend we wont attract the crowds.!st when we were in div 1 playing well did we we get the crowds we deserved answer no.2nd think of what ollie says he wants players who want to play for millwall not just the money same goes for the fans,the fans who want come only if we spend big money are going to stop coming if things go wrong.
    so ollie and the board have succeded in phase one by keeping us in the championship,so lets keep off their backs if things do not go how we want transfer wise and league position,and sopport what they do come what may.

If they valued him at 250k a week or so ago why the hell have we let this drag out in the media for the likes of Huddersfield and Birmingham to sniff around? That's what scouts are for, if our board are not listening sack our scouts and just read transfer rumours online and step in last minute like the others do.

      @JONO: are you seriously suggesting that Huddersfield and Birmingham only learnt about his existence when articles about him got posted on this site?!

      Other clubs are aware of players and their potential. If he got voted best player in the conference I reckon, just maybe, that other clubs other than Millwall may have noticed.

      Halifax will look to make as much money as possible and will sell to the highest bidder. They don't care if that's us!

      People assume he wants to join. For all we know he might really want to go to Huddersfield and think it would be the best move for his career.

      The club can only bid as much as they feel is an appropriate gamble/within budget and then it's a case of hoping the bid is accepted by the club and that the player wants to join and can then agree personal terms.

    Millwall have very little money of their own, and I for one think we have already offered over the odds for a 25 year old who is still playing in the conference. Stacks of scouts from all over will have had a look at him and only 4clubs it would appear are willing to part with any money for him. Something tells me it's cos he's not all that. Plenty on here telling us what millwall should be doing but I for one am happy with what they are doing and if they think Gregory is not worth what they are asking don't pay it. I know we wasted a lot of money over the last 12months but that is not a reason to carry on doing it.

    • @bordersarebest0170: 250k?? We spent that on the training pitch. I agree with what you are saying to an extent but we are not a club that could EVER EVER EVER afford a proven goal scorer in the champ.... 25 not old at 250k we could sell him on next year to a lower league club if he does not make the cut, Also not forgetting we could offer him basic wages.

      We wasted more than 250k last season every 8 weeks on Jackson, Campbell, Hoyte, Chaplow and Morrisons Wages.

      Lets see who we sign though, if we get a better more proven player with a bigger offer I will understand why they penny pinched on this deal, if we don't then I will be disappointed.

      I personally would rather we spend 750k on Grey and Gregory than get someone like John Stead lol.
      Make no mistake we are not attractive to any quality proven strikers. Other clubs in the champ will outbid us every time and also pay double wages.

      We would get nobody with a better record for 250k and we don't want to make the mistake of last season and pay massive wages on old timers.

    I don't think this is a lost cause because two other championship clubs are interested. If it's true that he's not bothered about staying in Yorkshire and is enthused about playing under Ollie, we are still in with a chance of we actually pay what they want. I'm not worried about Birmingham, who would want to play for Clark? Huddersfield also have good strikers already, we have no one, so he would more likely get regular games with us and be a focal point. Hope Ollie works his magic like he did when Brighton were interested in the Wand. Only stumbling block seems to be Ambler... The man is inept.

    Question is not how much to sign him or others but how much it will cost us if we don't pull our fingers out

    Cause with Easter, marquis , McDonald I can see league one calling !!

    People make me laugh yes he is unproven but we have signed a lot more proven s*** and lot more expensive

    Get Gregory and this gray kid and if it fails sure people be more tolerant on less expensive mistakes than hulse, Tyson, Campbell and Jackson

    Inaction is not a option and yes I am also aware it's still June !!

  28. How many of you wanted us to sign Lee Gregory 2 weeks ago? How many of you had watched Lee Gregory before the video was put on the original article about him? I would imagine not even 5% of you and if that video hadn't been shown you wouldn't have a clue about him so can we all stop calling him quality!

    I agree we most posters, we do need to spend money and not be afraid to bid that little bit more for players but I'm not sure this guy wants to come to us and I'm not convinced the club are willing to really try and sign him. I may be proved wrong and he will sign and if he does, then great lets see what he's got but I won't be fussed if he goes elsewhere. I say it all the time, we will sign/buy a striker, I just hope its the right one.

    Oh and just a thought, if someone had put a montage of Steve Morison's goals from last season on youtube, he'd look good ...

    I was talking with a colleague who watched a lot of Conference football last season. He rates Gregory a Le Fondre type player - but perhaps surprisingly doesn't have the same view on Gray. Luton were so dominant perhaps he had a much higher proportion of chances. Either way, both represent a risk; we've been lucky with Harris and Morison - we could easily find ourselves another Chris Kelly (for those with longer memories). On the other hand as many have pointed out we've wasted lots of cash on loan wages - Campbell is I reckon the worst example - so we have to give it a go but only with one of them.
    Don't write off Easter - saw his goal at Bolton last season which was a great finish; he needs a run in the team and I'd start with him next season with whoever we manage to sign.

    All good points on here.
    If Macd stays with us I bet he starts scoring next season.

    All players have a fresh start under IH & they WILL want to play for him unlike Lomas!!

  31. Soo... What if we sent marquis off to Halifax,
    The boy gets 25 goals we get excited ? His now a few bob, have we got a star in the making, all over again ?
    I fully believe that the pitch made a massive difference between winning and losing last season, how many teams scored from a set play the season gone ? Specially under all time lo mas, what I would like is someone with a personality that speaks volumes that kids want to put on the back of there shirts.
    -Throw back a few years
    Darren byfield what a player when he wanted to be, but I enjoyed poul hubertz better out Of the partnership,
    Transfers - Shane ferguson (Wide left) and the Rb from Rotherham on loan from Newcastle could be decent young propect that might not make there first team. ?

    How many of you lot have seen this bloke play week in week out? Why get all up on Ambler, Ollie etc. when all we've got to go on is a poxy YouTube video. We're not experts, this isn't Football Manager where you can punt $250k and it not matter. Get behind the club and the gaffer - they know what they're doing. Besides, if we signed him and he turns out to be pony all you lot will be the first to get on his and the board's back about what a waste of money he is. I for one trust the management and the board to have a good pre-season and pick the right players who want to play for our club for the right price. Yes we've got some terrible deadwood and have made some shocking signings recently but the past is the past. We've got Ollie who we all respect, so let's support our club as we need it more than ever. COYL.

    Lets not go balls out for Gregory as we can waste his fee and more on Hoyte, now that was a good bit of business!

    I see the Ambler debate is up and running again. I'm sure if it goes tits up for Messiah Holloway it'll be Ambler's fault for getting him in.

    Happy with this.......

    Keeper sets sights on the Premier League
    David Forde believes the club is going places after penning a new three-year contract at The Den.

    The Millwall and Republic of Ireland number one has been away on international duty for the past few weeks, but put pen-to-paper hours after arriving back in England following his country's friendly to defeat to Portugal earlier this week.

    And the 34-year-old, who first arrived at The Den is 2008, is pleased that his future is finally sorted out.

    "I'm absolutely delighted," he told Lions Player. "I suppose it's been an ongoing saga. Because of where the club was towards the end of the season, with the new manager coming in, it was a bit prolonged.

    "I'm chuffed that we've managed to get it sorted and it's great to be signed. Going forward I think we can be really successful."

    Forde is now off for a summer break but will return for the start of pre-season training, and says he can't wait for the new campaign to kick-off.

    "I really feel that there is something starting to bubble here again," he added. "We've managed to get promoted into the Championship and sustained that for a few years.

    "I think it's a real stage of progression, building on that and really moving forward.

    "The manager was a big part of that as well with that he is bringing to the club. He's done it in the past and I'm like everybody else, my dream is to play in the Premier League. I've always said that dream would be with Millwall. I'd love to achieve that."

    Look out for an interview with Forde on Lions Player later today.
