Millwall boss wants to sign a left winger as injuries pile up

KENNY Jackett has confirmed his intention to sign a left midfielder during the January transfer window after Chris Taylor and Liam Feeney were sidelined by injury.

Taylor picked up a knee ligament problem against Brighton last month and may require season-ending surgery if he has not recovered by mid-February.

Feeney was forced off at half-time against Preston North End with a hamstring strain on Saturday, having scored what proved to be the winning goal, and could miss up to three weeks.

And Jackett admitted: "I'm sure we would be looking to bring someone in. It is a position where we need somebody who's quite natural there.

"Quite often when you play someone out of position, they stick out like a sore thumb. We do need a natural left winger and an option or two in that position would help us."

Millwall are believed to have explored the possibility of re-signing Andros Townsend on loan, but Tottenham want to keep the winger at White Hart Lane.

    I hear that Gareth Bale is a bit useful.

      N'Guessan is also a better winger than a striker so why not use him or Scott Malone?

    What about Anthony Wordsworth from Colchester? He is playing regularly, is from London and is a good age at 24.

    Dyer is constantly crocked, financially a big risk and very short term. Beckford is not in Leicesters plans and I bet he is being considered, and yes I do remember he elbowed Fordey but I am sure they can work it out.
