MILLWALL boss Neil Harris isn’t finished adding to Millwall’s defensive options after signing Jordan Archer and Joe Martin this week.
He is targeting a left-sided centre-back and would ideally like to have a deal completed before the squad leave for Portugal in 10 days.
Brentford’s 30-year-old former Lion Tony Craig is believed to be an option.
The signing of a defender with Craig’s age profile would fit with Harris’ plans to add some more experience to a youthful squad.
He told the club’s website: “Young players tend to be a bit hit and miss in the early stages – I certainly was.”
“However, we have some very talented lads here who will be key to the successful future of this club, so we have to give them time and surround them with some more senior players of good character.
“It’s my choice to go this way. The make-up of the group will be very different this time round, with so many players leaving at the end of last season.”
Meanwhile the search for a centre-forward also continues.
Harris added: “It is no secret that I want to bring in another striker so that we have four or five with different attributes competing for places. Anyone we add has to suit us and the dynamic of the dressing room so I won’t be rushed into anything at this stage.”
