Millwall boss: Trialists are an option if they fit with the club


MILLWALL boss Neil Harris has not ruled out taking players on trial this summer.

Last July Magaye Gueye and Matthew Briggs had successful trial periods at The Den before being offered contracts by Ian Holloway.

Ugandan winger Martin Mutumba was also offered an opportunity to impress but Holloway opted against signing the player and he later joined Rah Ahan in Iran.

Winger Gueye scored five goals in 32 league appearances but was dropped last February after failing a body fat ratio test. He wasn’t retained by the club this summer and has yet to find a new club.

Former Fulham defender Briggs was also released after making just seven appearances and has since signed for Colchester United.

The transfer window officially opened today and Harris would like to add to his squad as quickly as possible after securing the signings of Jordan Archer and Joe Martin last week.

“If a player comes highly recommended, and we’ve obviously done our research on him and it fits really well then yes, we could have a look at him,” Harris said. “But it’s important to get the mix right.

“You don’t want to take a player on trial just for the sake of it. You’d have to give it some serious consideration before bringing a player in.”

    I thought there was a plan B,C and D for players needed to fill gaps as Hanson,Mawson, Craig and Timlin have not materialised.I'm happy Hanson didn't come off as I think hes pump anyway. Scored
    70 odd goals in 6 seasons. Rather unearth a 20-30 goal a season power house that can establish himself with us and fit around the other players.
