Henry completes permanent move from Millwall to Wolves

JAMES Henry's permanent move to Wolves will go through on January 2.

Millwall agreed a deal with the League One club back in October, understood to be worth up to £250,000 including add-ons, and the paperwork will officially be completed this week.

Henry has scored four goals in 13 appearances since moving to Molineux on loan and will pen a two-and-a-half year contract.

Ex-Lions boss Kenny Jackett told Wolves' official site: "He has done very well so far.

"In terms of James' recent performances I think he has been struggling a bit after his groin injury which has hampered him a little.

"But within the games he is able to produce some fantastic crosses and through balls which can create chances and opportunities.

"Players like that can be hard to come by.

"He now has to make sure he gets himself physically right and 100 per cent and he has the ability down the right hand side to be a really good player for Wolves."

Chief executive Andy Ambler told Millwall's official site: "Following the departure of Kenny, James indicated as early as last summer, that he would not be renewing his contract with us once it ran out in June 2014.

"Our priority now is to appoint a new manager and assess with him the areas of the squad that need strengthening.

"Taking that into account, we decided it would be in the best interests of ourselves to allow James to move on in order that we could secure a fee for him which would not be the case if he were to leave next summer."

    So if he said he wasn't going to renew why was nothing done in the window in the summer? Poor from the board again, and to think we can still lose Fordey, Trotter, Lowry, Keogh all for free... couple of seasons ago would have gained us 3 or 4 million if we sold the lot of em! How can the board not see this and take responsibility?

      @Omer Ronayne: Omer, get real you must have been watching us all this year, not just the Lomas period, so who is going to pay 3 to 4 million for any of our current squad, if that was the case I am sure that 1 or 2 may have been moved on to balance the books.

        @Barnlion: I'm stating when we were playing in 2012? which was a couple of seasons ago... Talk of Lowry going for 1.5 Mill to Southampton a year and a half ago. Trotter constantly linked with the Premiership back then. I'm stating the clear facts that if we lose all of these players on a free we will be losing so much money!

        And yeah I've been watching all this year, the same way I have been for a number of years now. I've missed only a handful of away games this season, and it just annoys me how this club works. If we are to keep Trotter, Forde, Lowry.. It will all be on their terms because we will be begging them to stay. And thats not how it should be! Take last season.. Shittu given a two year deal when the club only wanted a year.. We are becoming a joke and the board need to sort it big time!! I love Berylson because without him we wouldn't have a club to speak of and follow up and down the country. But some of these decisions need to be questioned because we really do need to turn the tables both on the field and off it!

        But I'll be there tomorrow as I always am supporting the club I've grown up to love! First time in a long while I'm actually looking forward to a game. Chopper leading the lions with a passionate crowd behind him. What more can we want? COYL!

          @Omer Ronayne: Omer, I am not having a go at you, just saying, that if we had players of the value that you stated on our books 9so they would be of prem lower class) then we would be much further up the table, or as stated in my first post JB could have sold one or two to lessen the amount of money he has and continuing to pump into the club.
          Also we may have had larger crowds at home if these players were really of such value in the transfere market, regarding Shittu he played out of his skin as a 33 year old to get a 2 year deal, so I dont blame him I blame the board and KJ but thats history now he has he deal, I do hope Chopper is not in charge tomorrow as that would mean that Ron Harris is at the club, so I really hope its Bomber he is looking after the team tomorrow.
          The crowd will be passonate if they see a proper mMillwall display against the division leaders

            @Barnlion: Hahaha. Chopper, Bomber either do for me! And I know you ain't having a go, your opinion does differ to mine slightly but the fact to me is that losing these types of players on a free is a crime to the club! How do they sit there and think lets wait until January to sort this out when agents will sit there rubbing there hands together just at the thought of it. I don't blame the players nowadays.. Football has been taken over by agents just looking for a payday!

    Well at least AA and the board moved quick enough to get us a fee for Henry... Which will got toward the Lomas compensation payment package. Henry was perhaps one the culprits to senior disruptive elements in the squad along with Shittu, Trotter and Keogh. But this rot started a few seasons back when the likes of Alexander, Harris, Craig and Frampton were all moved on (needed to be done because of the level of ability needed in the championship) and players like Henderson and N'Gussen were brought in not to mention in the latter half of last season when we had Tyson and Hulse as well. Awful players with stinking attitudes, the rot really took hold and poison the club from the inside out...

    This is where for me personally Warnock is the only management option with the experience and the no nonsense attitude to gut the team and rebuild as well as some restructuring on the coaching side of things. I really do think he would do well for us, Holloway would initially be good option but would irritate every wall fan a few weeks in with his 'quirky' antics that would quickly become tiresome and take the attention away from the matters going on at the club.

      @Bexley_Lion:
      Would that Darius Henderson be the same awful player as scored 26 goals in 56 matches whilst showing more ball control than anyone apart from Trotter and, arguably, the much scorned Henry? Obviously there are huge drawbacks with the bloke off the field but as a player he did a blooming good job for us.

        @The Humble One: I agree, as a talent Henderson was excellent but if the rumours are to be believed the board were paying him way above what any of the other players were getting which led to some disruption in dressing room harmony, then Henderson had that GBH court hearing looming over his head and apparently (rumours) near the end of his time with is he use to tell Kenny outright he didn't want to play so it would go down as "injury". A loose cannon and one small factor among many others leaving Kenny feeling frustrated and irritated contributing to where we find ourselves now. We need more youth talent in the squad with hunger and desire to impress not experienced mercenaries causing to many problems in the squad.

      @TheBermondseyBomber: He was so far up himself and I guarantee that he will do the same for Wolves as he did for us, and that's flatter to deceive after a few months. No real pace to speak of and best got rid IMO. Feeney is the same, looks totally out of his depth for us, but who knows, he might change now SL has gone, but I doubt it.

        @beedoscores: Typical winger - when he was good he was good, when he was bad he was horrid. Definitely thought he was better than he was and I'm sure he'll soon go off the boil once he settles in at Wolves. Hopefully the start of a big clear-out of our over-rated squad.

    I think we've shopt ourselves in the foot here, don't see how selling henry improves our situation especially for such a low figure, it wasn't that loing ago he was regarded as a hot prospect in the championship. I would rather see the back of Keogh.

    Fair comments. maybe if the board had shown a bit more desire to get a good manager in we would have kept hold of him and a better manager could have got more out of him? at 24 he's still young enough to learn and improve from someone with experience (not lomas).

    I can't see how anyone can disagree with the club selling Henry in this window? When now know he wanted out after KJ left & his contract with us run's out in the summer, its our only opportunity to get a fee? I do however agree with an earlier point on here, why wasn't he sold in the summer? I am sure clubs would have come in for him and we could have been looking at £750K possibly even more.

    Whats more worrying is the position of the club at the end of this season, we have a huge amount of players who are free to leave in the summer and are free to negotiate a contract with another club in January. A few names who were mentioned earlier - Forde, Trotter, Lowry if we lose them for free at the end of the season, I can see huge negativity from the fans and the rest of the squad and a lack of replacements brought in, if we do find ourselves in League 1 next season it will only get worse.

    If it was down to me, the current members of the squad whose contracts are running out this season, would be offered contracts (perhaps the odd exceptions) if they say no/stall I'd look to move them on now before we lose out all together, if players aren't willing to commit to the future, why keep them now?

    Only the news of a new manager and dare I say new signings can lift some of this doom and gloom at the club at the moment...

    As stated already, Henry is a league 1 player, will Wolves keep him if promoted, I doubt it and £250,000 suits both clubs.

    Better than nothing. Weren't a bad player just sulked and threw is toys about too much hopefully he can grow up and play to his abiity cause on his day he was red hot. He's back full time with kj which will bode well for him.
    good luck JH.
    I think we would have got a bit more for him if he was not so inconsistant so 250k aint bad unfortunately about 150k of it wil be going to SL but even that could have been a lot more had he been on a 2 or 3 yr contract so a bit of credit must go to the board for that. I just hope the board dont try and play hard ball with the applicants.

    Glad he's gone, his heart wasn't at Millwall. I just hope we manage to off a couple more, especially those unprofessional players who have caused problems for both Jackett and Lomas. In my opinion I would like to see the following players gone from Millwall:

    Shittu
    Robinson
    Keogh
    Bywater
    And obviously all of the loan signings..

    all this talk about we should of sold this one and that one is pure speculation, if any club had come in and made a decent offer for the likes of trotter, lowrey, ford, etc, almost certainly millwall would have done buisness, maybe premier clubs did have a look but, like us realised with the exception of ford the rest of our lot are nowhere near premier standard. i suspect it's just the usual paper talk. remember when reading made an offer for robbo,we all knew about it, crap offer,turned down,but we all knew about it. so my point is, i don't think anyone wanted to buy these players of ours or they would have made an offer and we would have heard about it like the robbo/ lenny offers that have happened.

      @benzo: Only when he felt like it which was very rare this season and latter end of last season.
      His corners we crap, his free kicks also, and he couldn't beat anyone so I think 250k was a result.
      Many on here remember the old JH which sadly hadn't been around for quite sometime.

      @timchimes: Interesting article Tim, the Premiership teams have had their collective snouts in the trough for a long time now and it does make me smile when they start squealing when it comes to an end for them. Maybe administration beckons for Bolton, it would be one less relegation place to worry about.
      So thanks JB for keeping us afloat and not plunging us into unsustainable debts and thus preventing us from going the way of Portsmouth.

    All I have to say about JH is that if he does not want to play for OUR club that we live and die for then he can f*** off, f****** melt. And if any other player doesn't want to play for us then they can go the same way. A very good player on his day, but I don't have any time for any player that doesn't want to play for Millwall.
