MILLWALL will offer forward Shaun Batt a new contract this summer, manager Kenny Jackett has confirmed.
Batt scored the decisive goal in the Lions' 1-0 victory over Watford in midweek and will be handed a further 12 months to make an impact at The Den after his injury nightmare.
The 26-year-old is only just getting back up to speed after his knee was ripped apart in a pre-season friendly back in 2010, but made huge strides during a recent loan spell at Leyton Orient.
"We will offer Shaun a contract and he knows that will be the case," Jackett told NewsAtDen. "We will be in discussions but all of the players, if selected, must concentrate on staying up first.
"There is quite a bit of sorting out to do in the summer, as there always is, and Shaun's contract will be one of those things. There will be a positive discussion and an offer for him, definitely.
"We've put a lot of time and effort into Shaun. If somebody is going to benefit from his hard work, I want it to be us because it's the club who have worked with him through his injury.
"Things will be crystallised in the second week of May. I have been very pleased with Shaun since he came back from Orient – I hope he can stay fit and battle-hardened.
"He can definitely contribute and the supporters have a lot of belief in him."
