Millwall "make new contract offer" to Gillingham loanee

GILLINGHAM manager Justin Edinburgh has revealed that Millwall have offered a contract extension to on-loan striker John Marquis.

Marquis scored his eighth goals in 17 appearances for the League One club in a 1-0 victory over Bradford City on Saturday.

Former Lions boss Ian Holloway was prepared to let the 22-year-old leave on a free transfer in the summer but Neil Harris has been closely monitoring his performances.

The Gills had hoped to sign the forward on a permanent basis.

But Edinburgh, speaking to Kent Online after Marquis' match-winning display, said: "It is difficult because he is not our player but there have been talks.

"I think Millwall have made him a new offer of a contract.

"When players like John Marquis come to the club and have the impact that he has, then you are going to be interested in him, there is no doubt about that.

"We have spoken to John on numerous occasions. He is comfortable here, has fitted into the group well and he has eight goals now.

"If there is something we can do then we are trying hard to do it. When you have someone on loan, if they have a spell like he is, it becomes a different equation."

    Marquis Gregory and Obrien plus one more new signing hopefully a target man....that should get us goals but we need midfielders to get in the box too.....Cowan and Fred on the wing....Upson is good not sure about Williams he dont seem strong enough for a battle would be good to sign up Jos but Harris has to buy 3 or 4 and ship out the deadwood we all know who they are its basically a good team which would have stayed up comfortably without Holloway ....so its not all doom and gloom.....Harris and Livers are definetly the men for next season

        @baz2262: totally disagree, his performances were good when he was on the pitch. Can't blame a guys attitude when injury seems to be the problem.

        @kyran_nicholl07: Im not slagging him off at all but we need to boss the midfield.....October to February he was our best player in a confused team so that wasnt really hard.....not sure hes right for a Harris type team....our team went through hell with Holloway You could probably been our best player

    It's telling of the decline of this club that we are now viewing a John Marquis as the answer to our prayers.

        @malcolm03: In more ways than one! Paid over a million to get shot of the players in January and he cost us 1.4 million to pay his contract off!!

      @wongo: Kevin Braniff in disguise. Every time we get close to getting shot of him, some fool comes along and gives him an extended contract. When will we ever learn.
