LIAM Trotter is happy to discuss a new Millwall contract – and insists he has not given any thought to a move elsewhere.
The Lions want to get the midfielder, who has been a standout performer in recent matches, tied down to a new deal before the New Year – as first revealed by NewsAtDen.
And Trotter said: "It's nice that the club want to offer me a new contract and I'm happy to sit down and discuss it. Hopefully we will come to an agreement. I'm relaxed about it.
"No matter who you are or which club you are playing for, if you have ambitions to play at a higher level you are only going to get there by playing regularly anyway. But I don't think about wanting to go here or there, I'm at Millwall and I'm enjoying it.
"As far as I'm concerned, I cannot worry about my contract because that's only going to have a negative effect on me. The most important thing for me is to get my head down and try to do my best every time I play – if I do that, things will work out okay for me."
Kenny Jackett tried and failed on several occasions to extend Trotter's contract but the 25-year-old has nothing but thanks for his former manager.
"I was happy under Kenny," he said. "When I first came to the club I was a young lad from Ipswich with a handful of games under my belt, whereas now I'm pushing 200 games in the Championship and that is largely down to the fact that Kenny picked me so often.
"I have no gripes with the previous manager but I am happy under the new manager. I'm happy as long as I'm playing."
Trotter is working towards reaching boss Steve Lomas's ten-goal target for the season – and he has already found the back of the net three times.
"The manager played in the Premier League in my position so I'm going to listen to anything he has to say," Trotter said. "He's set me a target and I hope to reach it. But if I set up 20 or 30 goals and didn't score again this season, I'd be just as happy."
