NEIL Harris says that George Saville's immediate future with Millwall could be known this week. 

The former Chelsea midfielder joined on a 28-day emergency deal from Wolves on October 6 and has yet to taste defeat in a period in which Millwall have remained unbeaten and he has been a key player.

Saville, 22, was the oldest member of Millwall’s midfield in the 2-1 win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday and helped the side make light of the absence of Shaun Williams, who missed the game with a back injury.

Saville’s current deal takes in two more league games, at home to Doncaster on Tuesday night and then against Bradford at The Den next Saturday.

Harris has admitted he wants to keep Saville, but stressed it will ultimately be Wolves manager Kenny Jackett's decision on the future of the player.

The Millwall boss said: “George has done well for us and he’s enjoyed himself. It’s good to have him at the moment and whoever he’s played in there with, and he’s had three different partners in four games, he’s done really well.

“We’ll be a lot clearer on George’s situation this week. It’s down to Kenny in terms of what he wants to do with George.

“We’ve enjoyed having him, he has enjoyed his football, but we are very respectful to his parent club.

“We’d like him to stay, of course we would. We’d like to extend the loan but sometimes in these instances you make the request and it’s down to the other club to agree.”
