MILLWALL academy starlet Junior Tiensia is reportedly a target for Premier League champions Chelsea.

Liverpool and Manchester City are also thought to be interested in signing the 14-year-old, according to The Daily Mail.

Tiensia is only 14 so under the rules of the Elite Player Performance Plan, the Lions could receive around only £56,000 in compensation for the player.

Fees are dependant on time spent at a club as well as the status of each academy.

Millwall’s academy was awarded category two status in 2013 with re-assessment occurring every two years.

    Millwall will receive £56,000 and Chelsea will end up either letting the player languish in their reserves or sell him on for a few million quid... Still its a testament that our Academy and youth scouting is getting better and back to producing quality young players for the present and future

      @Bexley_Lion: at that age there is no guarantee he will be worth more than £56K after languishing in the reserves. #whereschernosamba

        @glyngo: just read Cherno Samba's wiki page and it certainly does match my recollection of his Millwall career before heading off to Liverpool reserves.....allegedly we turned down a £2M offer and guaranteed him 3 years senior football. Did I miss that?????

          @glyngo: David Amoo went Liverpool and since his move has slowly made his way down the leagues to Carlisle! Worth the move! Fred would be the example to follow for our current youth - knows he needs to play and knows that won't happen at the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea!

            @TheBermondseyBomber: quite right, I was thinking of David Amoo. Still did we really turn down 2M for Cherno???? Seems incredible.

          @glyngo: I don't know but if that's true we're mugs! I refuse to believe we sold Morison for similar money yet held on to Cherno Samba that's nuts!

            @TheBermondseyBomber:
            Cherno was years ago so can't remember the details too much, but he did play for the England youth team and was very highly rated so it's not unbelievable to think maybe we did turn down the money. Although given our history, I would say it's unlikely! We've always sold players on the cheap, so I can't imagine us turning down an offer like that.

      @mfc2u: I like the idea of a new scoreboard - its embarassing that we can't replace it.

          @timchimes: the way we've been conceding goals you would need to be from Norwich to keep track if your using your fingers.
