KENNY Jackett has admitted that winger Hamer Bouazza and keeper Steve Mildenhall could leave Millwall this summer.

The Lions boss has spent the past week finalising his summer transfer plans with chief executive Andy Ambler and chairman John Berylson and is now beginning to put them into action.

Bouazza did not feature in the final five games of last season and news of his availability for transfer will not come as a surprise to many.

But Jackett says the future of Mildenhall is less certain, and will depend largely on the 32-year-old's willingness to be third-choice next season behind Maik Taylor, who is expected to sign a one-year contract in the coming weeks, and David Forde.

"If there is something out there, I would not stand in his [Bouazza's] way, whether it is in this country or abroad," Jackett told the South London Press.

"I am sure Mildenhall has a passion to play and be a number one. After that, it will depend on his thoughts and whether there are clubs interested."

Mildenhall made 15 appearances for Millwall last season, keeping six clean sheets.
