Millwall miss out on Kane as Spurs striker opts for Leicester

MILLWALL'S hopes of re-signing Tottenham forward Harry Kane have been scuppered by a rival loan offer from Leicester City.

Kane has joined the Foxes until the end of the season despite being offered the chance to return to The Den, where he scored seven goals in 19 Championship appearances last season.

Lions boss Kenny Jackett told NewsAtDen. "We have tried to get Harry again but he has chosen to go to Leicester. Apparently they have said to him that he will play up front with Chris Wood.



"He's chosen that option but he had the option to come to Millwall as well. Obviously it is his choice and we wish him all the best."

Spurs rarely send their talented youngsters to the same loan club twice but Jackett believes there were more important factors behind Kane's move to the King Power Stadium.

"That has been mentioned," he admitted. "But bigger crowds and bigger attendances come into it, as well. Playing in front of 25,000 fans instead of 10,000 is a consideration for Spurs.



"In the end, it looks like he is set to go and we are disappointed because we have tried to get him."

Despite missing out on Kane, Jackett says he is in no rush to bolster his squad with another signing and says fans must give Arsenal loanee Benik Afobe time to find his feet.

Jackett said: "Benik is still quite new and it is tough when the cup comes and there is a break in team selection. I think that can stop a player's rhythm.

"If you look at other loan signings, we have had successful ones like Kane and Wood, but they were not necessarily fantastic in their first game of their first month at the club.

"It takes time to get into it. It very much depends on how these guys bed into things and how they look as to whether we feel we need to address the playing squad before the deadline in March."

    Reading this makes me feel sick.

    Things could have been so different this year, if only the Wembley supports turned up each week.

      Pearson should just admit that when he is trying to sign player all he does is look at who Kenny is trying to sign and offer them more money so they come to him.

      Joe if we turned up every week mate we'll need a bigger ground, and there aren't enough Divorce lawyers to cope with that much business.

    This really is disgusting. I can really only see our season battling it out to stay in the division. Makes you think what could happen if we had higher attendances. When will the armchair fans come down the den? Two or three times a season is not good enough - we need more people if we are going to push on. Otherwise we will be a league 1/championship/fa cup team, kenny can only work with what's he's go, we need to give him more...

      It's down to the club to fill the seats. Commercially they need to make it a better experience. More incentives, cheaper tickets, anything to increase attendance. Not enough creative ideas to getting fans in. Using the groups for Making money with tv adverts is all they seem to care about.
      Might seem cheesy but that's what needs to be done. Other clubs do it and it makes the difference.
      If they would make the amenities better as well, not just put lettuce in the burger. All these add up to people enjoying there day down the den and will make then wanna come back

      Mate the club can do more. there was 8000 against posh on a champions league Tuesday, ask the club not us who don't go every week why that was,
      Charlton still do kid a quid, palace do cheap cat 2 tickets. Both get more in the door than us. The club offered a couple quid less for members against posh, why can't they do bring a mate for a fiver all midweek games instead of once or twice a season. As much as you'll hate me for saying this (I couldn't give a flying f*** I must add) if they did that against posh I more than likely would have gone. Everything seems to be hard work since we moved grounds
      Even getting tickets on line is ag most times. Give me a valid reason why I should pay 25/30 quid and a 3 hr rnd trip on a freezing cold Tuesday night on the week of my daughters birthday
      (that money can go towards her day) and the week I'm going boro away to help pay those robbing lazy b******* wages. If the club done an away season ticket I'd definately buy one, I'm getting a season ticket next season regardless of what division we'll be in, but for this season they've offered no incentive for me to come every week and circumstances won't allow me to.

    Nasty. Get burnt twice. JB needs to do something. And I reckon if we played the same squad on Tuesday that we played against Luton, could've been a lot different. Not broke don't fix it

    The good news just keeps coming....and Leicester beat us to yet another signing.
    To be fair, why would Kane want to come back to us at this point of time. We've just been battered 5-1 by the Posh and are going the wrong way in the league.
    Have spurs got any decent midfielders? Might be worth asking Jackett as our current midfield are about as useful as a chocalate fire guard!!

    I'm getting a bit p***** off now!!! We play and nurture these youngsters, give them exposure and then when it's time to return the favour they start telling us how they need a bigger club, more fans, better prospects..... Do me a favour. Woods, Kane, Leicester et al, you're welcome to each other!!!!!!!

    Leicester have told Kane that he will play up front with Wood? I shouldn't think David Nugent is too happy about that!! There is no way Kane will walk into Leicester's first team like he would have at Millwall. He will be warming the bench for the rest of the season!!

    I just can not believe what I am reading. You can not blame Kane or Spurs for him going to Leicester, why on earth would he want to come to us. Why would he want to join a club that is about to get into a relegation fight as opposed to one that is likely to get an automatic promotion place. What makes me very worried is KJ's saying "There is no rush to bolster the squad" no, there is plenty of time for BA to find his feet. We have earned 4 points since Xmas day 4!!!!!!!!!!! We are playing so well, why look for anyone else.
    What I do not understand is that KJ says "No rush etc" then why was he prepared to take Kane, but not prepared to look for anyone else. Does not make sense.

    Dyu think Norwich would've taken Kane had he not been turning heads ? The same goes for Wood and his goals....they've used us as a stepping stone.....Wood said quote "if millwall want me I'll definately sign"!!!!
    So, enough with the loans and SIGN some players who want to make a career here

    Absolutly shocking. a lot of people want to blame the attendances but look at the facts we get a good player in on loan always and cant keep him, if KJ want's fans down there Millwall need to spend money on a player that can push us up the league. the players we have at the moment as a unit are not good enough to get promotion let alone get 25,000 fans down the Den, i have been to every home game this season and it is the same storey I CAN understand why people dont turn up. We had 1mill avaliabel for Wood so why when we missed out on him did we not get in quick to snap someone up. YOU GET A PLAYER IN WHO SCORES WEEK IN WEEK OUT AND YOU WILL GET THE FANS BACK THERE.

    I find it disheartening that we are the only club in London that seems to struggle. Palarse who have less money than us and attract the same average attendance in a season have the ability to bring decent signings and sell their youngsters for £15M...we sell ours for 1/4 of that!! we never seem to go out and get talent from the continent, even though there are professional scouting programmes that national managers utilise to keep a track of their foreign based players...we seem to be stuck in the stone ages and never seem to advance. If our owners were to bring some of the American expertise that surrounds American sports franchises, why can't he introduce it at Wall? A better experience will increase attendances and success will come more naturally to us! The root of Walls problems, don't just boil down to the managers players choice, but more of a roots problem!! with all this money flying left right and centre, the days of having a loyal player like Bomber Harris at the Den are gone, unless we develop our youth and scouting system!! I'll do it, I know of players in other lower European leagues that will have players more than capable of playing in the Championship and beyond!!

      If only when did we ever sell a youngster for 3.75m?! We don't even get couple hundred k for players that are poached by likes of Chelsea and Liverpool in recent years. Even Cahill arguably our greatest ever player to come thru youth set up didnt even fetch 2m.

    It has nothing to do with attendances MFC newgen is right it is down to the club to get people off there a*** and down the den, who wants to waste money watching us get spanked 5-1 I don't care if you say millwall through thick and thin 5-1 is no incentive to watch that crock of s***, to be fair hulse has done ok but he's no wood and afobe hasn't been here 5 minutes but play the kid in his natural position!! Kane turned us down because the club has no ambition he saw we missed out on wood when we could have grabbed him first!! There's more to millwall that what they tell us. The ambition with kj and jb just doesn't seem to be there.

    Why not go to Leicester and buy their players? They should have one or two getting peeved with all the new players coming in. Next season Leicester might be promoted and they'll be the big club we look to for new signings.

    Wages Sidcup mate.
    As i said before but got a bit of stick...If you build it, they will come. If there was more investment on the pitch, we'd have a solid, competitive team, capable of playing the football KJ wants to play. The masses (5-6k)would come in, and generate a bit more revenue. I'm not saying go for broke, just push the boat out a bit. After all we were able to pull up 1.5m for Wood. We could still use that to buy a couple of decent players from elsewhere couldn't we? I cant argue with a lot of my pals who say 'im not paying to watch that'.
    Not sure what the incentive is for JB and co. anymore. Do they want to build a club or is there more of an interest on the land outside the club?

    Of course he's gone to Leicester. Wouldn't you ?
    Boyd has gone to Hull on loan with a view to a permanent signing. Wouldn't you ?
    Wood to Leicester wouldn't you?
    Why would these players sign for Millwall when there is ABSOLUTELY no chance of making it into the top six this year. Our whole structure, management, players etc. needs a major overhaul. Personally, I think it's just as well for Jackett that Berylson is rarely in London as if he was he's have more of an outlook as to what is required to turn things around.
    We're not signing good players. We're constantly trying to plug gaps with garbage. Trying different formations with players out of position.
    I can't blame any of the stay-aways for not coming.

    Also, no-none can tell me that if we had bought Wood when we could have done instead of fannying around we wouldn't have added a couple of thousand to the gates. Then, we'd be in the top pack and getting Kane on board would have been another coup and another couple of thousand. We had, and still have, the transfer money-why haven't we spent it ????
    Our record transfer paid ? 800k. When was that ? It's an absolute disgrace.

    Why are we surprised, I never thought we would get Kane, to be honest I never thought we would get Wood, once he started banging in the goals. Why are we still looking at loan players. They will just make a name for themselves and obviously move on, we want players who are grateful for a contract and willing to give 100 per cent for the cause without an agenda to just promote themselves for bigger clubs. Sell the players that want to go and rebuild next season, once we have hopefully stayed up. get rid of loan players, use our young players and stop fu-king getting short term loans in , as they do not give us any stability or have fire in there bellies to fight for a Millwall shirt. Fu-k Kane and Wood let them go and earn their fortune, Leicester not going up anyway, oh and we got to play them, let Sh1ttu sort them out and hopefully the players don't embarrass themselves again

      Agree Delboy.
      And if anyone thinks that we're going to get anything at boro then they're living in the same dreamworld that Jackett is currently in.
      I really hope that honour will come into it and that he'll resign after Saturday because I don't think that Berylson has the heart to fire him.
      Jackett's an honourable man and has been good for Millwall up to now. I remember the s*** we were in prior to his arrival but his transfer record, his tactics of late and the laid back attitude that he projects indicate to me that it's time to go.
      Di-Canio............Now there's someone who will sort out the dressing room and keep us up.

      Enough to keep their attendences at least double ours, and thereby, be in a position to challenge for promotion.
      Watch our team at boro on Sat. Jackett will pack the midfield, play one up front and god forbid put Jack Smith in at left back in an attempt to come away with a point which aint going to happen.

    We are in this position cos of 1 man and that's KJ. For all he's good work on training pitch he done half spunk money up the wall. If we didnt waste money on pointless loans and contracts for players who don't deserve them we'd have the extra cash to have signed wood instead of loaning him and we'd be the ones with Kane although we wouldn't want him cos jacketts love child keogh has to play who btw is playing worse than trotter at the moment. Year in year out he wastes money and always will. Have hulse Tyson and afobe improved us at all? No. Woolford, no. Instead of signing these s*** players give some kids a chance like palace do and we'd be no worse off would we. I don't think hulse is any better than marquis and we are paying him 9k a week. Tyson around 15 plus the loan fee. We'd have been better off seeing out the season and saving that money for when players are available on frees and no longer wanted at clubs. And for f*** sake scout the lower leagues. Dwight gayle played for f****** Dagenham and redbride yet peterboro get him from under our noses and he will move on for a tasty profit. Our whole transfer policy needs looking at. No old timers unless they drastically improve the team like claridge back in the day. Only sign players with a resale value. Only way we will ever progress. Can't keep p****** money up the wall on has beens on big contracts. Rant over.

    we get attendancies not much more than southend, gills, orient and lots more like em,they are 1 and 2 divisions below us. we have a champioship ground and little else is championship about us,small crowds,no money, no rich arab/ russian and the like, yet so many people on here seem to think we are bigger than we actually are,we are a division 1 club that has got itself into a division thats a bit big for em, but as usual we have a bad spell and everyone starts moaning. well i,v supported millwall for years and years and will continue to give them my full support they are the club i was born and brought up round the corner from, they don,t have to do anything to make it more attractive to get me there,just as long as they are there i.ll be there whatever their league position or whatever division they are in,whatever form they are in.don't turn on your club because they are struggeling

      Not at all. But if the club was managed the right way we could be better. You telling me palace are a bigger club cos I ain't having that 1 bit. They are running the club the right way. We could have had Glenn Murray a couple seasons ago didnt wanna pay 10k a week I believe. Well we paid Henderson 15k Tyson is now stealing the same whilst keeping babic busy as f*** so we just need to know when to pay the big wages and to who and when not too. KJ needs someone above him controlling the budget but we are too small for that to happen so until then we won't go anywhere. Decent loan signing every now and again for half a season then w*** signings for rest of season and just hope that that good signing does enough to keep us out of relegation trouble.

    Don't think there is anyone at the club who would turn round to jackett and say hold on a minute hulse is 33 turned you down 4 times before is he really worth that wage?!? Don't think it's any coincidence that since he's loan at charlton ended there form has picked up. Love kj but can't see us improving if he stays. Think could be time to move on but only if appointment is right.

    The Chris Wood turning us down and not replacing him properly is whats f***** us. The other 10 players he played with havent suddenly become s***, it would seem to me most have lost their hunger! By not getting Wood or a decent PERMANENT option the club have shown that they are not willing to gamble financially for the playoffs. The players can see that and as individuals they will have more ambition than wanting to finish mid table (if we're lucky atm) and arent playing well because their p***** off/shot of confidence/morale and lost that hunger!. Harry Kane can see our aspirations so its no surprise he chose LFC, he could potentially win a medal in 4 months! We cannot attract proven championship quality players so we need to develop them! Harris and Morison were a non-league gamble and we need to do more of them, players who if they come to Millwall it will be the biggest club theyve played for so that have that hunger. For Hulse and Tyson its one of few remaining pay-offs and for afobe, kane, wood it is/was a stepping stone. Loans should only be for injury cover not our first team!

    yep luke, you got it. we are a league 1 club that punched above it's weight, we have always been a yo yo club because our attendances are among the lowest. people keep going on about we don't spend any money... what money we don't have any, yeah berylson might make some available to the club but he didn't get to be a multi millionare by giving his money away, like all directors when he puts any in he gets it back with plenty of interest and a cherry on the top. we go up we go down thats how it is with millwall. and wheather we like it or not palace are a bigger club than us,always have been,they have always had much bigger crowds, pay more for players,pay higher wages,get bigger money when they sell players on. they always seem to buy one of our good players like chris armstrong,andy roberts,and we get back their ol s*** like phil barber and dave tuttle,they just got 15 million for a player ,and people think we are as big as them,don't take my word check it out for yourself.

      Your right borders, we ain't a bigger club but I could never admit that to them feckers. They must be laughing their b***** off right now and the wally's in se7. I'm only in this hept up opinion cause the club and jackett larged it in December about signing wood, making a serious push for play offs and if we don't get wood we have a back up list of targets ect. ect. And I'm also pi#+*d at myself for buying into the bulls#*t mate how silly am I ? That's sll something no chairman and manager have delivered on. Pheo and McGhee ring a loud bell.
      Oh well, same old same old.

    Why the f#+*k do SOME of you still wish to blame the fans who ain't here every week ?
    Bottle throwers = fans who ain't here every week.
    Racists = fans who ain't here every week.
    Reason for not getting wood = fans who ain't here every week.
    Reason for Kane saying NO = fans who ain't here every week.
    F#+*k me your boring, never the c#+*s on the pitch or the c#+*s who train and pick the team or the c#+*s who run the club. It's that s#+t attitude that's got us in this mess, your just what the board love, quiet gullible people who are SO LOYAL they can't smell s#+t on the end of their noses. Perhaps it's your attitude that keeps SOME away. Lets flip it a little, we play a big club and only the 8000 season ticket holders and members turn up, we lose the game, I bet you'll say "we would have won if the fans who ain't here every week turned up". Better than that we made it to the 1/4 finals and the first post read " let's get the den packed so we can make the atmosphere electric. packed and electric, so you mean to tell me that you 8000 can't do THAT on your own and you need us, the fans who ain't here every week. You 8000 is what this club has budgeted on for as long as I've been millwall
    When we put a little run together a couple more turn up. When we put offers out like the bring a friend for a fiver, a couple more turn up.
    Wood scored regularly and at same time the team had a very good run of results, more people turned up. Morison before him had a similar effect, when ever our side has played consistently more people turn up. when we signed Harris and he started scoring regularly the teams performances were consistent, so more people turned up. We took 49000 to the old wembley that was more than our biggest recorded attendance, Wigan brought 8/9000 which was their full support at that time. They now have a packed house over 25000 every week, why ? Cause their in the prem, and they're in the prem cause they used the extra money from the extra support on 1st team improvements. They took a risk while they were earning that little extra, something our club has all ways been scared to do.
    You same said are predictable like the people running the club, so much so that you'll probably now jump down my throat.
    I wish Kane all the best cause he done well for us when he was here, nothing more nothing less. I'm sure I'll see many more after him as I've seen many before him. It's not not signing Kane that's my issue its the s#+t "IMOs". We all have the same thing in common, our love for millwall fc. Maybe one day you 8000 will turn around and say thanks to the fans who ain't here every week for turning up and making it electric.

    Why the hell would he come and play for us at the moment? Very few of the players are fired up and it's obvious that we lack ambition, which was evident when we allowed a great investment Chris Wood go!!!!!!!!!!! Kenny you should hold your hands up and take responsibility YOU ARE THE MANAGER and you have got the tactics wrong lately!!!!!!!!!

    I think we need to realise that we're punching above our weight in this dividion as it is and we'll never be able to compete with the leicesters of this world. Also, our minority idiots and morons who hurl rascist abuse or chuck bottles will never persuade a lot od players to come to us either. Persoanlly, I tink we're better off being a good league 1 side than a poor championship side who'll have to scrap every season to survive. On the whole we do have some very good players who are more than capable in this division but they're not consistant.

    luke, i love your imput and your passion, right now a lot of us are feeling as frustrated as you,but wigan are totally different to us,they have a director/owner who was an excellent footballer himself with man city,comes from that area, a propper football man, made a mega fortune with his sports chain,bought wigan when they were a tiny outfit and ploughed his own personel fortune into the club,and did it for years and years cos he loves that club like we love ours,people like that just don't come along very often,and thats why they are where they are now,without dave whelan they'd still be in the northern premier.wigan cannot be compared to us in any way. where's our dave whelan? don't see frank maloney, danny baker, david hay or the likes putting any of their wealth in,but they'll all be at wembley if ever we get there eh. well said bolland, unfortunately i have to agree

      Point taken on ownership borders.
      But my points were focused on how to get bums on seats and what to do with the extra funds that they will generate. We've had and have extra funds available admittedly it's too late now cause we won't get anyone in but we had money available to make a statement of intent on the playing surface in jan, not just through the media as KJ and the board were doing. Mate I don't like the promises our club make yr after yr then embarrass their selves with excuse after excuse. Yes we all know deep down what kind of a club we are, but the expectation level rose when KJ and the board came out and larged it. If they're to learn anything from this season it's to keep the trap shut and knuckle down on the playing front and leave the silly talk in the past.

    You see when we were supposed to have the funds available for the supposed buying of wood, we were also supposed to have a plan b ? I don't really think we had either or a plan c,d,e,f etc, we get the same old boll-Cks every year yet still we get loan after loan after loan, we have zero chance of buying A Smith as we had Zero chance of buying H Kane, we should have taken a punt with Wood when he was 500k instead of waiting to score goal after goal which obviously attracted bigger clubs and the rest is history. We p***** the money from Morrison up the wall, we sold Harris and were left without a forward line, so this season, we miss out on Wood let Hendo go and still we don't bring our own youngsters through, I mean when is Marquiss ever going to be good enough, When are we going to give Wilkinson a run, because our current crop of sh1t ain't doing much are they. Hulse and Tyson PLEASE. Keogh will come good but who else, Afobe? Another loanie who will go back to Arsenal, what's the point. I mentioned smith from Oldham in another post,, why don't we go for him, you know what will happen ,we will wait and then he will go somewhere else as usual. KJ take a gamble for once in your life FFA and if it fails so what at least you tried. Lets see if he gambles and drops Trotter. Wright is chomping at the bit, Trotter ain't lazy tw1t
