Neil Harris hints Mark Beeves set to leave Millwall

MILLWALL defender Mark Beevers looks set to leave the club this summer once his current contract expires on June 30.

Lions boss Neil Harris has confirmed he has been talking to replacement centre-halves to fill the void Beevers will leave once his departure is confirmed.

"We will look at replacements for him," Harris said. "Mark’s moving on so we need to bring in a centre-half, we already have Tony Craig, Byron Webster and Sid Nelson.

“I’ve been busy talking to centre halves, Mark’s advisors have shown no interest in him staying… so we’re left to prepare for the new season without him.

“He's had a really good season, he played his best football at the football club by far in the last 12 months.

"With his contract expiring he got himself in the shop window, he is a good lad."

The 26-year-old initially signed on loan from Sheffield Wednesday back in October 2012 before signing on a permanent basis the following January.

Beevers made 150 appearances for the Lions during his three years at the club, scoring eight goals.

His last goal for Millwall came in the League One play-off final defeat to Barnsley at Wembley in May.
