Settled Millwall star shrugs off Rotherham's summer bid

MARK Beevers has reiterated his commitment to Millwall after Rotherham's failed bid for him this summer.

The Millers' paltry offer of £150,000 for the centre back was rejected in June.

And despite having his roots in Yorkshire, Beevers would not be interested in a move away from The Den.

"The bid came out of the blue to be honest," Beevers said.

"We'd just finished the season, Rotherham had just got promoted and suddenly they put a bid in.

"It didn't get any further than that – it got rejected and that was it. I haven't heard anything since.

"It's not a big talking point for me because I love it down here.

"I’ve been at Millwall for two years – there have been ups and downs and we’ve had good times and bad – but I’ve really enjoyed it.

"There are good people here. It's a big move for a northerner to come down here – when I first did it I wondered whether I'd enjoy it, but I really have."

Beevers is readying himself for his second full season with the Lions after making a storming finish to the 2014-15 campaign.

The 24-year-old's return to form in the final run in was a key factor in the club's survival.

He added: "I wasn't involved when the gaffer first came in, which was frustrating for me.

"When a player isn't involved, he has to aspire to become better and do more. I think that's what I did along with a few of the other players.

"That mindset brought the best out of us just in the nick of time.

"Staying up last year was one of the biggest achievements of my career so far."

    Glad to hear that you are still happy here Beevers.
    I was seriously worried that we was going to lose you in the summer.
    You have been one of our best signings in recent years.
    250k was a real bargain.
    Good luck this season.

    Very similar to Robbo from what I have seen albeit that's not too much. Probably just needs to add a bit of grit and guile to his game but best of luck Beeves

    I heard some Rotherham muppet say "we don't want to spend a lot on a back up defender". Beevers would get into their starting 11 with two broken legs, and I for one, am happy that he's staying
