MILLWALL boss Neil Harris says there is no agreement in place to sign midfielder George Saville on a permanent basis in January.

The Lions reached an agreement with Kenny Jackett’s Wolves to extend Saville’s loan with the club until January 6 having initially signed him on a 28-day deal at the beginning of October.

The 22-year-old made his debut in the 2-0 win over Northampton in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and some impressive performances and injuries to key midfielders convinced Harris to request an extension.

Saville is unbeaten in a Millwall shirt in six games and Harris said no decision will be made on his long-term future until next year.

“I think with George it’s just continuously monitoring his development,” Harris explained. “Thanks to Ken and to Wolves for allowing Sav to get out and play some first-team football and for appreciating that he’s in a good place to learn.

“He’s certainly enjoying himself and we’re pleased to have him.

“There isn’t any agreement that he’ll become our player. We’re pleased to have him until January and we’ll take stock as a when.”
