MILLWALL manager Neil Harris has said he will look elsewhere if a deal cannot be struck to bring Shane Ferguson to the club permanently or until the end of the season.

Ferguson is set to play the last game of his loan deal at Chesterfield on Saturday, and Harris admitted there has been no movement on the player’s situation.

Harris hinted he is eager for an answer as he wants to add to the squad to improve chances of a promotion push if Ferguson returns to Newcastle or moves elsewhere.

“Again, nothing has changed on our end, we’d like to keep the boy,” Harris said. “It’s down to Newcastle and his representatives to strike a deal to enable Shane to come.

“I’m quite strong in my stance that I need to see some progress with it. If not I need to move on and find alternative options.

“The beauty of Shane is that he plays at left-back and left wing and is comfortable in both positions.

“We’ve a light squad and there’s definitely space down the left-hand side for somebody with directness and who can deliver the ball to come in and give us that option.”
