MILLWALL have ended their long-term interest in Southampton winger Jason Puncheon.

The Lions are looking to sign a left midfielder this summer but the former Den loanee is not on their radar.

Puncheon is desperate to leave St. Mary's and NewsAtDen understands the 25-year-old has sacked his agent Tony Finnigan in a bid to engineer a move.

But boss Kenny Jackett is thought to be concerned that Puncheon would be a disruptive influence on his squad.

One source claimed Puncheon is no longer on speaking terms with Saints manager Nigel Adkins and is regularly late for training, as he commutes to the south coast from his home in London every day.

Elsewhere, Sky Sports reported on Tuesday morning that Stevenage defender and Millwall target Scott Laird is being lined-up for a move to Preston.
