Harris may look to loan market to strengthen Millwall side

NEIL Harris will utilise the loan market if he deems it necessary.

The Millwall manager is still actively searching for players to strengthen his side with only nine days to go until the start of the new League One season.

Harris hasn't ruled out permanent additions as the search continues for new signings before the big kick-off on August 8.

And the Den boss has said, if needs be, the loan market will be used to bring in additional players.

“I think I'm quite open to either (loan or permanent signings),” Harris said.

“I'm not against the loan system whatsoever, I think if used in the right manner, it can be really productive.

“For me, a loan period is either for us to have the opportunity to have a look at somebody, or it's to bring in a player for a period of time as someone else is unavailable – both are win-win situations. I'm not opposed to the market.

“I like our players, I like what we have, but if we need to bring in one or two to strengthen for a period of time and give us a chance to look at the bigger picture and have a closer look at other players, then that fits as well.

“We need to be patient to a certain degree, I'm not going to waver on my stance that I’ll only sign players I want to sign. I'm not going to take players just for the sake of taking them, it's wrong.”

Harris added: “The aim is always to get the players in you want by the Shrewsbury game, that’s the main aim.

“If we have somebody in by C.D Tondela, it would be perfect. As I'm finding out, however, football isn't a perfect business.

“If it means adding to the squad after the first game of season, or after the first few games because of injury, suspensions or I feel we may be lacking something. I'll certainly be willing to do that.

“We’re working everyday being mindful that we looking to bring players in from teams who are in similar situations to us and looking to sign players. We are at the stage now where I need to speak to clubs and managers.

“I know players might want to come but, if they're not being let go by their clubs then it becomes difficult.

“There are targets that we like, we know the characters and abilities and what they offer. We’re just now being patient while waiting for other clubs to get in their targets and let us have their players.

“It's a waiting game, which is frustrating, but I'm fully appreciative of everybody's situation.”

    I think the club's search for a striker may well come as a loanee and, who knows, we may unearth another Harry Kane.

      @Bolland: I think people dislike the fact that every loan player we have found ends up somewhere else, for a long term problem we can't be searching for short term solutions anymore.

    Personally hate the loan system, rather than get young player from one of the big boys, the last few seasons we have been getting 30+ year olds who are not interested.
    Go back a few years when we were getting. Wood, Kane, Ohara, glen Johnson etc, young and hungry not old and s***!!

      I totally agree but as you can see form my earlier post I get 2 dislikes! We don't want old 30+ journeymen that have not graced our shirt over the past few seasons. We can't attract the right type of striker to our club and no prizes for guessing why we can't, it's plain to see.

    Loans are fine as long as they're used to bulk up the squad and increase competition, however i feel like Harris isn't getting the financial backing he needs to compete at the top. We need goals!! So obviously a striker is a must, but we need goals from our midfielders too! When the likes of Sheff Utd and Wigan are signing Sharp and Davies, why can't we sign that calibre of player who's going to get goals in this division? Very worried

    I think this is going to be a long hard season. We seem to be relying on a few older pro's and a lot of inexperienced youngsters, with a few injuries or suspensions we will struggle. We have only added a couple of new players after letting 18 go at the end of the season, so we must have cut our wage bill considerably,. Money was obviously available a few weeks ago, so whAt has happened ? Loans are useful but once a player settles in and maybe scores a few goals or plays well, then gets recalled a big hole is left to full quickly. I just hope NH is not being restricted by the money he needs to build a decent team. The Wigans and sheffields are building their teams and we are not

      @Peckhamlad: Harris is working under constraints as we don't have any money to spend as they are still paying off Coco's remaining part of his contract which I believe is a 5 figure weekly sum. He really has shafted us big style proper toxic.
      So NH has got to try to preform miracles with what he has got and what he can get in on loan's, lets hope id does better than the potty one did last term, any way I for one am not excepting too much of an improvement this year even thou we are in a lower division, because this was the level we were preforming at last term.
      IMO I think that he has condemned us to 3 years of trying to get of league 1 and he has got a brand new job working for Sky with his expert knowledge of the football league (well he will never manage again lets hope), so money from us and money from Sky the highest paid clown since Charlie Carolie.

    Complete and utter emabarrasment as usual. 9 days before the start of the season we are again saying we might have to use loans blah blah blah, we have had all summer to get our house in order but yet again will rely on whoevers left that noone else wants on loan, don't we ever learn. I appreciate we won't be signing million pound strikers but every other team manages to sign players ready for the start of the season, I have seen players better than we have signing for s*** like Scunthorpe!!! JB said in May/June we have the third biggest budget in league etc etc and we will spend and compete etc, people were optamistic and season ticket sales went up, we then sign a young keeper, Tony Craig and Gillinghams third choice left back!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We should of been able to attact good 1st or 2nd division strikers for reasonable money yet Hariis/Amber and co make out it's rocket science to sign anyone and we are fed the usual crap about they need to fit in the group etc etc, it's just excuse after excuse when part of running and managing a club is signing players, every other club (many smaller than ours) seems to manage to sign players. The thought of starting the season with Marquis up front is a complete joke, proved over many years at Millwall (and given plenty of chances before everyone says he hasn't) that he is not good enough yet a few goals at the pikies and all is forgotton. The club is run appalingly from top to bottom and once again the fans are being short changed. All hope and optimism we had after the Wolves game has disappeared after a simply disgraceful summer of transfer activity (or non activity) 18 players out and 3 in, if the club think we can challenge for promotion with kids then they need locking up. The people responsible for standing by Holloway far too long are still running the club, deeply worrying and seemingly unaccountable for there decisions, Ambler seems to be a massive problem. I have my Shrewsbury ticket but am going in hope rather then any expectation.

      @millwall0501: I understand your frustration as I'm sure most do, but I think you are missing some big points. We have tried to sign players but we are a small club and simply can't afford what good players want. We've had the guts knocked out of us by previous managers and the worst being holloway who put us in financial dire straight with FFP. This can't be undone over night and you can blame JB all you like but if I were him I'm buggerd if I'd spend money on this club the way he has. I think he's a blessing, or would you rather have reg burr! Look at the positives, we finally have an academy producing some good future talent and we have a manager that loves the club like we do. Can't remember the last time I could say that. The only expectation I have for this season is to see a team of fighters on the pitch, and to see them grow each week and slowly get better. Anything else is a plus. We've taken some major steps back in order to come back stronger, but I believe we will come good. Like the song goes 'come rain or shine' and it might be raining now but it won't last forever. Can't wait to see our young lions show there teeth. Keep the faith mate

    4 seasons we've been looking for a striker , everyone has been crying out to get one & this is what it has come down to, awaiting another club to buy someone else so we can have the opportunity to talk to their rejects.
    I don't blame NH , he is trying to make a bad situation good, what I do blame is the board they seem to fail at every given opportunity, we have needed a striker for a while now , we moan about it at the beginning of the season , during & after the season & yet still nothing is done. As fellow supporters have said other clubs have already sorted themselves out & it is worrying that with 9 days to go were still looking for players .

    This has been a worrying trend under Berylson/ Ambler for sometime, the board aren't backing Harris,striker was supposed to be a priority, waiting on other clubs,loan players again, all ominous signs at this stage. I'm beginning to fear for us,Scunthorpe,Barnsley,Sheffield Utd,are all looking strong,if the younger players feel the pressure and the goals dry up,looking at our midfield with lack of goals it's possible, I think Berylson will be happy to stay in this division for 2 or more season and save money,just hope we don't do a Bristol City and slip down the leagues like they did in the eighties !.

    I think its Morison or a loanee by the sounds of it. I posted a couple of weeks ago that NH had told a relative of mine at the Bromley game that there was no budget for big signings, and he has to get on with his youth policy. I don't think its gonna be a disaster this year but we will be mid table at best. I also have no idea who or what is out there as a striker. The other clubs mentioned on here buying players, are buying players that no one else wants so we can't have our cake and eat it. We are in Lg1, so we will get that quality of player, or a young prem U21/18 player that the home club want to develop. No interest in Millwall whatsoever, just games and trying to make a name. I hope I'm wrong

I just hope all the negative posters come back and say sorry to JB,AA etc if we storm the league. I am just looking forward to a season of players trying to play football, giving all for the shirt and fans, and I for one think the manager and squad will do that, if that is good enough then great, if not I will be first on to say sorry got that wrong, but at the moment I am really excited about the new season.

      @lennie the lion: I can understand your views.
      Yes it is good to give Youth a chance and produce your own players.
      And yes it was good to get rid of the 16-18 time wasters.
      I was optimistic a while back,but that seems to have disappeared.
      I thought after letting those players go and others taking a wage cut that we would add 6-8 players to our squad.
      Needless to say 1 of those players would be a striker/goalscorer (and as someone has said what has changed since we bid for Hanson ?).
      There seems to be much smaller Clubs than us in League 1 who seem more ambitious than us.
      I would love to be proved wrong and we do `storm the League`.
      Somehow I doubt it very much.

    I'm not being funny or anything but have we not brought in a new chief scout in recent weeks, what is the purpose of their role, they supervise a bunch of scouts who do a lot of miles up and down the motorway searching for potential players that want to play at a higher level, report back to Chief scout who then informs the manager to have a look at this lad, manager goes to have a look, reports back to chief exec, who then starts the principle discussions with their counterpart. Agree a nominal fee and chuck in a few track suits as a bonus, player agrees their terms, signs contract.... Job done. How many scouts on walls books ? It surely cannot be that difficult job........sorry got to go, off to do my coaching badges. Also please explain the purpose of a certain Mr Ambler ?

      @dady71: Bob Pearson, one of our best scouts had contacts across the country and Northern Ireland. The latter regularly run his eye over young prospects and Bob used to either fly there to look or invite the player to the club, he managed to sign a few good players. Not only that being on very good terms with many other scouts he often got the tip off about youngsters with potential. Kinsella, O' Callaghan, Horne, Stevens, Sheringham, Sadlier, Cahill, and many more came to Millwall that way. What has happened to the youth set up the club was famed for?

    You lot crack me up!!
    We only need a striker and we will walk the league, but without one we are relegated.
    We can't play with our youth team, but we are talking about 2, maybe 3 of our starting 11.

        @LETEMCOME:
        I don't think he meant it like that. It seemed to me like he meant most of the drama queens on here are saying "we need a striker" and then we will p*** the league, but without one, everyone seems to think we are fked. Is sensible people know that's not the case but I do enjoy sitting back and having a laugh at some of the peoples comments on here. Proper breakdown material, and so much rubbish being spouted it's unreal. You just gotta laugh at NAD.

    Why do we have a chairman that is supposedly minted but we cant afford nothing. I think he has employed boardroom staff who have as much a clue has he does and is being made to look a t***. Ambler out.

      Heard from where? Jackson scored 2 goals in 3 appearances when he played for us before.

      Nile Ranger's troubled career at Blackpool could be over for good after the striker claimed he'd been sent back to London by manager Neil McDonald.

      After returning to training 10 days late after an unapproved eight-month absence, Ranger took to Instagram to tell fans about his latest off-the-pitch issue.

      The former Newcastle striker described the situation as a 'shambles' as he called for the help of the Professional Footballers' Association on the social media site.

      Martin Waghorn another forward from Rangers but know little about him.

      Hope this is not another false rumour.

        @Peckhamlad: Waghorn also played for us on loan, he was a work horse, not prolific infront of goal but would graft up top in league 1.

        Ranger is vermin, went AWOL at Blackpool, he would not last five minutes here he's a street rat whos still out robbing. Shame and waste of talent, would cause drama in dressing room

      @benzo:
      Someones making stuff up and telling you lies. Bomber and the fans would NEVER accept Ranger down the den. Waghorn has only just signed for rangers, and Simeon Jackson is a pile of s**** who is a midget, therefore doesn't fit our criteria.

    Your a lucky man JB you was badly advised to have Lomas as manager and got out of jail by appointing a so called quality manager ( hands up I was all for it ) then when that so spectacularly went wrong was advised again to wait to long to get shot of him which ultimately got us relegated I take it Ambler was a big part in all those decisions or an advisor. Then lucky enough Bomber was waiting in the wings to get you out of the mess again , making a legend manager always works even if its only for a season , you were also lucky enough to have 3 or 4 youngsters who wanted to sign 2 year plus contracts which helped keep the fans happy but I think your lack of real ambition will come back to haunt you and the luck will run out , Bomber was a cheap option so were the young players I dread to think what would have happened if those mentioned were not around the club at the time as no real investment has gone into the now much smaller cheaper squad . Yes you lost a lot of money but that's football if we had ever got in the prem you would have been laughing .
    believe it or not I actually like JB but now is not the time to not gamble on our future .

    Same old Millwall.....taking the p***

    Millwall fans treated like mushrooms once again - kept in the dark and fed on s***. Come on you do-gooders. Simply not good enough, so so predictable trotting out the same old lane excuses. Honest to Christ - some of the petit criminals I defend in court every week trot out more original excuses that our beloved club. I love Millwall more than I love my wife, but even she affords me more respect than to fob me off with such a load of predictable old bolllocks. I've bought 4 season tickets for the coming season, 1 more than usual as an attempt to recruit a new follower who has lost his soul to a plastic Prem club. It would be really helpful if the club could provide us with some more ammunition to fire our enthusiasm rather than yet more predictable stories that should all start with "regretfully we are no nearer to signing a new striker worth a f****** s*** for the fourth season in a row but..........."

      @T20ColdBlowLion: T20 a great post I am in the same vein as you I have no enthusiasm for it at the moment but again got the season ticket, don't fancy too many away games, but if the results start coming our way well you never know maybe I may change my mind.

      I would just like the Den to once again be a place away teams fear to come so that's where we need to do our bit, but first the team need to give us something to identify with??

    “If we have somebody in by C.D Tondela, it would be perfect. As I'm finding out, however, football isn't a perfect business." - I'm hopeful today then is the day we get somebody in...
