Millwall to run rule over Tottenham keeper during loan spell

YOUNG Tottenham goalkeeper Jordan Archer has joined Millwall on loan with a view to earning a permanent deal at The Den.

Archer has been training with the Lions for the past few weeks and played a trial game in a behind-closed-doors friendly against QPR.

The 21-year-old is viewed as a possible long-term addition to Ian Holloway's squad after being told he is unlikely to be kept on by Spurs.

Archer could be let go by the north London club in the summer which would allow Millwall to sign him on a free transfer – if he impresses.

He would add to a growing number of highly-rated young keepers already on the club's books.

19-year-old Tom King and 20-year-old Denzel Gerrar have both been named on the bench as back up to David Forde this season.

U18s shot-stopper Harry Girling, who was once on the books of Arsenal, is also well-thought of, as is 16-year-old England youth international Ryan Sandford.

Archer, who has previously had loan spells at Wycombe and Northampton, has played for Scotland at U21 level.

    Great news and great addition. Could have a very youthful looking side next year. Hopefully in the Championship!

    Hmmm not sure to think of this one, is there a point to it seeing as we already have a duo of up and coming keepers?
