van Veen bound for Scunthorpe despite late Millwall offer

©
©

KEVIN van Veen has agreed to join Scunthorpe United despite late interest from Millwall in the striker.

Scunthorpe have been long-term suitors of the Dutch second division star and flew him into the UK yesterday after week-long talks.

The Lions made a last-ditch attempt to hijack the deal, agreeing a £250,000 fee with the forward's club FC Oss, but van Veen has followed through with his move to the Iron.

The League One club have given van Veen a three-and-a-half-year contract. It's believed Millwall had reservations about offering such protracted terms to an unproven player.

Speaking to the Dutch press about his move to Glanford Park, van Veen said: "Until a minute before we started negotiations with Scunthorpe, Millwall were very concrete.

"Scunthorpe manager Mark Robins, a former Manchester United striker, and his staff have convinced me [to sign]."

"I'd have liked to finish the season in Oss, but such an opportunity can be hard to turn down. This offers me some financial security."

    How anyone can blame the scouting department on this is beyond me, they went and watched the player, its not like they missed him completely, they don't make the deals they just make a report on the player

      Without this 2nd division dutch player Millwall will cease to exist.

      Thankyou Harry for your well rounded, rational response to us not signing this player.

        @MFC Lion: haha quality MFC, I agree with you, yes he looked alright, and yes we would have loved to have him, but we didn't get him so let's move on, the fact the scouting team noticed him in the first place tells us something, but if he was discussing personal terms with them before we waded in, at least it shows he has principles, and not just after the bigger pay day, that said we ain't got him so END OF!!

    We were behind Scunthorpe all the way on this, didn't see it on any media sites with them.

    Yet we stick stuff up left right and centre and end up with jack s***.

    Maybe keep our cards close to our chests and get targets in and then say deal done.

    There is no guarantee that this player is Championship standard so a 3 and a half year deal is a bit much. I imagine we offered him a 2 and a half year deal. Looking at the two clubs I think he's been badly advised choosing Scunthorpe and it looks like he has chosen them because they guarantee him an extra years wages. Well in my opinion he should of chosen us as the bigger club and in the capital city. If he was scoring goals for us and playing well he would of earned another contract afterwards or at least put himself in a bigger shop window. Bad move for me.

      We're a higher level club so for an unproven player it was always going to be more of a trial length of contract...
      Question is, who's next????? Clock's ticking.......

          3 and a half years is too much for me. No other championship clubs seemed to of been interested either.

    Before it was mentioned on here/Twitter we had gone to look at this Van Veen, how many of you had heard of him? I can tell you the answer to that that question - NONE OF YOU! Yet you'd think we had missed out on a huge signing?!?!

    This guy does have a good record but it's in the Dutch second division, which lets face it, none of us know anything about and if Scunthorpe want to give him an long term contract good luck to them. I'm glad we haven't given in and agreed to a long term deal for this guy, he'd have just become like some of the other squad members we have who just sit back and take their money no matter if they're playing or not!

    Some of our fans are an embarrassment when they moan about transfers especially ones like this, you can't possibly know this guy would have scored goals for us in the Championship and you don't know anything about him apart from a YouTube video. I'm sure I could put together a video of Ricardo Fuller that makes him look a world beater but it wouldn't make loads of clubs come in for him!!

    Providing we don't go out and sign a 30+ year old striker to score the goals to keep us (which judging on JB's interview, we won't) this lad will be long forgotten.

    Can't understand the outcry over this. We weren't even interested until Scunthorpe had a bid accepted. It's not like Scunthorpe have swooped in and snatched him from under our noses. We matched the asking price but the club weren't sure he was worth a 3.5 year deal. People moaning about missing out are probably the same ones moaning that Hoyte is still stealing a living from us. Long contracts have helped to land us where we are.

      @Hedgehog: if he was worth a look last week but deemed not good enough then why put a last minute bid in for him a week later when he's on a plane to yorkshire? Good enough last night then surely good enough last week when we could of had a week to negotiate a decent deal for him and the club.

        @lukesmithmfc: How do you know we didn't offer a decent deal? The only factor you or I know about is length of contract. We don't think he's worth 3.5 years and Scunthorpe do so he chose them. Scunthorpe have been tracking him longer than we have so if we'd put a 2 year deal on the table last week they would have put their 3 year deal in and would still be signing him.

    He's a 2nd division dutch player!

    Wait and see if he scores loads in league 1 for scunny before bitching about missing out on the deal of the century.

    Even if he is prolific in league 1 that doesn't mean guarenteed goals for the championship.

    What an absolute farce. How can going to League 1 Scunthorpe (or for that matter, even a Premier League Scunthorpe) be a more attractive deal than coming to 'wall?

    Harford and (possibly) Amber have to take the stick on this, for the main reason that in the previous article it said Harford watched him score a hat-trick and then didn't follow up. Why???

    And whats all this nonsense about him being an unproven player? Just because he hasn't played in the Championship? I guess then that Ronaldo and Messi are unproven at that level too? FFS.

    I also don't get our reluctance to sign a player of that age on a 3 year deal, that to our best knowledge scores goals (something our coaching team are still trying to get their heads around I imagine). especially when we had/have wages thieves like Hoyte, McDonald, Bailey, Chaplow et al on our books.

    Joke situation, but I will happily eat my words if we do sign a decent striker.

      @chembroLion: going to a premier league Scunthorpe over a wall in the championship should not need explaining. So I won't.

      Yes he is unproven as the championship is a higher standard to the Dutch 2nd division whereas la Liga is better than the championship.

      Assuming he wasn't on silly wages a 3 1/2 year contract, I agree, doesn't seem unreasonable given his age.

    "I'd have liked to finish the season in Oss, but such an opportunity can be hard to turn down. This offers me some financial security."
    The player is not saying I'm going to an ambitious club or I'm joining a great club. No he is saying this offers me some financial security and while I appreciate this is what the player wants we can't say Millwall got it wrong. One of the reasons we are in a state is the ludicrous overpaid and overlong contracts issued to average players.
    Still it gives people another opportunity to moan

    At the end of the day its a young promising striker (and that HAS to be our market, not proven over the hill cr*p) that we should have been more keen on. Harford saw him, and they didn't follow up any interest for a week. That's too long, and in the meantime scunny have cemented their interest in his mind. We should be going for this type of player, and we were too slow. That is all.

    Too little, too late AGAIN, the scouting section needs a complete clear out. Long gone the days of Bob Pearson and co who bought so many good players to the club (with the exception of Goddard). It may be a blessing in disguise though as there was no guarantee that this guy was the answer to Millwall's striker woes. They have had all year to sort this out and this is why I have little faith in Holloway's management.

        @glyngo: Scunthorpe have been talking to this bloke for a week and have been after his signature for a long time. It is absolutely ridiculous to suggest we 'should' have been able to sign him. At the end of the day it was the player's decision who he signs for - he's not a piece of property.
        As for the criticism of our scouting network, IH and AA identified this as an issue earlier in the season and have done something about it. Europe is a huge market and requires a network of scouts/sources. That doesn't happen overnight. Some of the criticism on here is absolutely over the top ridiculous.

    The thing here is that weve all been crying out for a striker long before the season started , apart from Gregory who has yet to come of age in the Championship & that was always going to be the case , all we have got have been over the hill forwards that are on their last couple of seasons. The problem i find is that our scouting system/ department whatever has tried to gatecrash i signing from scunthorpe , where we should have been at the fore front of this striker. As isaid from the start at the post we have all been shouting for a striker prior to the season & here we are at the end of January with nothing !!! as this feeble effort of hijacking this transfer shows our scouting efforts are next to none

    Well we don't know anything about this player or the way this deal has been done. What we do know is ,he comes from the Dutch 2nd division, and has signed for a div1 side in preference to a championship club, he says " the 3 and a half year contract gives him financial security". Now I ask all the moaners on here : does that sound like a player with ambition or a wage thief,( as you like to call them.) so for me I say well done ambler and well done the club, no way can we afford to give this SEMI PRO ( he's a plasterer by the way) a three and a half year contract, this fella didn't want to come to millwall , he wanted to go to the money / contract. RICKY VAN WOLFSWINKAL ( if that's how you spell it) 8 . 5 million to Norwich from dutch top division, got 1 GOAL for Norwich , now out on loan, but his DVD looks like this blokes. So to all you moaners I say, stop keep slagging the club off, a Dutch part timer is not good enough to make those demands, and if think that's what our club must have thought.

    Lets get a few things straight. Scunthorpe is in lincolnshire not yorkshire. Why would a player want to sign for a team just because they are based in london? Scunthorpe is not a s*** hole like london. Yes we maybe 17th in league 1 but with the chairman/owner we have plus new management team we are on the way up. We have an outside chance of the play offs this year. Just because we had a bad start doesn't mean we'll have a bad finish. 1 defeat in 13 league games is testament to that. You guys have a chip on your shoulder since we beat you at wembley. We are an ambitious club with a new ground on the horizon. Does it matter if we get 3000 or 30000 fans each week. We will pass you on our way up but your road back will be a harder one than ours. Up the iron

      Had we not got promoted the following season perhaps we would hold a grudge about Wembley. But we did get promoted and we're still in the Championship, perhaps we will go down to league 1 but your more likely to be in league 2 than the championship.

    Think you should cut some slack here.
    The squad has now completely changed, Ollie is getting rid of all the 'dead wood' which we all wanted.
    He is playing the youngsters and bringing them more into the first XI, which we all wanted.
    He is ending contracts early to create a better team spirit which we all wanted.
    He has so far brought in a couple of quality players which we all wanted.
    AA & JB are still forking out the money to end these contracts early. If we p**s them off who else would we find that would put money in to the club?

    Nice to see in this day an age that a player already shows loyalty to sign for a team that made the effort to fly him over to discuss terms rather than using it to get a better deal elsewhere. Alot of other players could learn alot. Time will tell if he is any good but we have a habit of picking up strikers fairly cheap and making them into good players, andy keogh, billy sharp and gary hooper to name just 3.

        @mewall62: im no mug and certainly not deluded. Come back in 4 months after we clinch a play off spot and then say im wrong. Bristol city manager says we're the best team they've played this year. Bradford city, who hammered you 4-0 said the same. You're the mug for putting up with whats going on at ur club. Even the so called bright lights couldn't persuade a player to sign for you. PMSL

    What was the point in this ?
    Not good enough last week but good enough this. That's what's frustrating, not the fact he chose Scunny. This season is embarrassing enough as it is without trying to high jack a league 1 clubs transfer. We should have left it alone. Absolutely pointless.
    As for people saying there's no guarantee that he'll score goals well the same could be said about every single striker out there and that's probably the reason why we don't try and sign any. Even s*** strikers have a decent freak season.
    Another thing, what a load of tosh about none of us knowing him before hand, like we all knew about Harris Morrison cascarino verveer kinet Stevenson and plenty others. Is that not the beauty of it? Signing unknown players and giving them the chance to reach their potential, cause the players we've signed that are known to us the past couple yrs have been absolute s*** but were signed on their previous reputations.
    I don't agree about the YouTube best bits either. It was designed to give us a bit of insight about him and show us what he's capable of. Is it not a strikers job to score goals regardless of the team and league he plies his trade?
    at least we have the loan market to look forward to.

    He decided to join Scunthorpe that's his choice. A bit worrying though that they seem a better proposition for him. However we move on and hopefully we have another target to go for.

    I think you can safely say he went for the three and a half year deal hence the " This offers me some financial security." statement. If he was ambitious and keen to make his mark he would have come to us. It is not about us not doing a deal it is about not doing a wrong deal like the Anoraks seemed to have done here with a three year deal and getting two goals in twenty games.

    The last minute nature of our attempt to hijack this deal is a worry. Thats never the way to spend money. Also a worry that we lose out to Scunthorpe - with all due respect. I disagree with the comments that we shouldnt have matched the 3.5 year contract offer - if you believe in a player then get them tied down. If he's a success it drives up his price if a bigger club tries to nab him off us. If hes not a success then you sell and you maybe make a loss. Thats the risk - and when the player costs just 250k - then its virtually no risk at all. Football is big money business and you're either in or you're not.
    With regards to signing a striker in this window - its less important than our ability to create chances. If we can create chances, we have the firepower in-house already (just about). Fuller will score with good service from the flanks and Gregory will score off the back of Hoffs flicks and Fabs creativity. The goals are there - IF we create proper scoring opportunities.
    Looking forward to the 3 points tomorrow. COYL

    The clock is ticking. IH and co will bring morison back on loan with Woolford going the other way. I think we should try and loan Maynard always scored against us and can score at this level. We need a goalscorer and if we do not get one then its curtains Div 1 next year. Three seasons of s**t. MH and other scouts need to pull their finger out and find a goalscorer.

    To quote Van Veen "I'd rather sign for a team on the way up to the Championship than one on the way out of it"..... We may not make the play offs this season but mark my words, we'll be Championship again within a couple of years. With the most ambitious chairman in our history at the helm it's quite obvious why Big Kev chose "little Scunny" over them brutes from South London..... He has ambition!! Up the Iron... Ps, where were you when Woolford scored? (and I mean when he scored in Claret and Blue)... Have a nice day folks.
