Woolford set for Millwall stay despite Leeds United interest


MARTYN Woolford is poised to remain a Millwall player after a proposed deadline-day move to Leeds United fell through.

Lions boss Ian Holloway had revealed that the winger could be swapping The Den for Elland Road before the transfer window closes at 11pm tonight.

But NewsAtDen understands that the deal is now off.

Woolford is likely to be included in Millwall's squad for their game against Huddersfield this weekend, with Paris Cowan-Hall and Lee Martin both injured.

It had been suggested that the Lions were swapping Woolford for combative midfielder Michael Tonge but that now also looks unlikely.

    With the injuries with got its sensible to keep him. Never know he might start playing well now he doesn't have to do Maloney job as well as his own.

      @block 28: you are right though, he had to play defensively with Malone behind him and didn't have the freedom to break forward at will. IH seemed to indicate that his salary was high but as he is contracted we should use him.

        Glyno, Make you 100%. We have seen what MW can do in the past, IH is now forced to play him but in a position we hope will pay dividends, I'm sure it will!. Roar again Martyn
