Championship rivals chase out-of-contract striker Henderson

MILLWALL are considering whether to offer forward Darius Henderson a new contract amid interest from several Championship rivals.

Henderson, who is due to become a free agent in the summer, is yet to be offered an extension on his current deal, despite scoring 22 goals in 46 appearances for the Lions.

The 31-year-old has been linked with a January move to Nottingham Forest and is also understood to be attracting interest from Birmingham City and Brighton.



Manager Kenny Jackett has challenged Henderson to win himself a new contract in the second-half of the season following the departure of loan star Chris Wood.

But Jackett has also fielded several tentative enquiries about the striker and, given that Henderson is one of the club's top earners, Millwall are unlikely to rush to the negotiating table with a hasty offer.

    His alright when he is on form, he can get goals but 9 times out of 10 he will miss sitters. I think he should be a striker we bring on at the 70th minute.

    We need to replace him with a striker who can score goals, Hendo knows were the net is 22 goals in 46 starts, he's just starting to get match fit, we don't want to loose him now I think we should keep him.

    Sorry but never been a great fan of Henderson. It always seems to me that he plays when he fancies it and when he does play he has to miss a couple of good chances before he'll score one, or he'll score a couple and then nothing for weeks. That said, 22 goals speak for themselves but I still wouldn't loose any sleep if he went.

    Too injury prone, too inconsistent, too expensive, too old. Rather get Kane on loan and try to buy him in the Summer or another youngster. If Wood had signed I'm sure Kenny would not have thought twice about Hendo going.

    I agree he is to injury prone, misses sitters that should be buried in the net, if the price is right let him go and buy someone younger and fitter

    When he is on his game he is unstoppable. Unfortunately, he is more off than on, and he is injured for half the season anyway. On top of that he has no pace and at 31 that will only get worse. Flog him now for a nominal fee or let him go in the summer

    lets get ourselves in a comfortable league postion dont think we are quite strong enough for playoffs yet and then start using some of these good youngsters we keep hearing about get them used to championship football so next season they can hit the ground running . dont think henderson will be here next season but dont think we will miss him holds ball up well but too slow to old an a bit like carlton cole needs 10 shots for 1 to hit taget now looks good when someone else is doing the running for him

    Let him go for as much as we can get now.
    Too injury prone and can only score with his head. Keogh is much better.

    Lets get a good price for him and cut the wage bill down a bit and then get in some one who knoms where the net is on the first attempt not 12th time of asking,Keogh will do a better job for us or one of the young lads

    We were warned about his 'injury' liability before he signed. Still, he could be playing for Belmarsh in the summer !!! Take anything & offload, purpose served ! We are in a better position now than anyone predicted ie. SAFE !.

    A goal every two games is a bloody good ratio. However Hendo does get injured a lot and now has the court case hanging over him in March. He was unplayable at home to Huddersfield but since then has not rediscovered his form. I have always liked him cos he is a proper 'Wall player but maybe just maybe cashing in on him might not be a bad idea.

    Hendo is inconsistent.misses sitters, is injury prone and has the court case pending. I am all for cashing in on him now but only if we sign another younger striker before the end of the transfer window to strengthen the squad. If the Tyson loan move doesn't work out that would only leave Batt,Marquis or N'Guessan tp play alongside Keogh and none of them are Championship standard.
