MILLWALL are set to appoint former Sheffield Wednesday keeper Kevin Pressman as the club's new goalkeeping coach.

Boss Kenny Jackett has been looking for a replacement for veteran Tony Burns since the 68-year-old announced his retirement at the end of last season.

Pressman, 44, will leave his current role at Bradford to link-up with Lions stoppers Maik Taylor and David Forde in time for pre-season training.

The former Wednesday keeper clocked up nearly 600 appearances before calling time on his playing career in 2007.

Pressman began coaching straight away and spent four seasons on the backroom staff at Scunthorpe United before he was sacked, then as assistant manager, in March 2011.

He joined Bradford in August last year but is on the move less than 12 months later after agreeing to become Burns' successor.

Former Wimbledon star Dave Beasant turned down the role last month after deciding he could not commit to a lengthy daily commute.
