TRIALIST Matthew Briggs has turned down a contract offer from Ian Holloway.
Briggs has been training with the Lions for three weeks but his Den move is now in severe doubt.
The left back was released by Fulham at the end of last season but he convinced Holloway to table a deal that would have seen him stay in London.
However, talks with the 23-year-old have stalled – and Millwall are ready to walk away from the negotiating table altogether.
Briggs could now join crisis club Blackpool.
Holloway told the Southwark News: "I don't think that's happening now. We have offered Briggsy something but he wants a lot more than I'm going to pay him.
"I've got a certain amount of money left and if he's not going to accept what I'm offering then he's not the right one for me. His agent says we are quite a way off.
"I like Briggsy but it was always going to be tight this summer with the number of players we already have under contract.
"I could have worked well with him but if he doesn't want to come here then I'll move on, it's not a problem.”
Briggs trained with the Lions on Tuesday but did not show up yesterday.
"I think he'll move on – he needs to impress other people now," Holloway said. "There is no point training and coaching somebody who isn't going to be my player."
