Millwall to make decision on former QPR defender this week

MILLWALL will decide in the coming days whether to offer defender Danny Shittu a short-term contract.

Shittu trained with the Lions last week and Kenny Jackett has since confirmed that he wants to sign a centre-back before the Championship opener against Blackpool on Saturday.

Eyebrows were raised when the former QPR star was not included in the Millwall XI that beat Bromley 2-0 yesterday as he is said to be short of match fitness.

However, NewsAtDen has since learned that Shittu instead trained with the first-team squad that morning and took part in an eleven-a-side match.

That suggests the 31-year-old is in Jackett's plans ahead of the visit of Ian Holloway's side to The Den.

However, it seems unlikely a deal will be in place in time for the League Cup clash with Crawley Town on Tuesday evening.
