Millwall set to discuss midfielder contract extension

MILLWALL are set to discuss a contract extension with Shaun Williams after he returns from injury.

Williams, 31, is back in full contact training this week and is set to be available for first-team action before Christmas.

Former MK Dons midfielder Williams signed a one-year contract with the club after winning promotion to the Championship. There is an option for a further 12 months.

Williams has made 167 appearances for Millwall since January 2014 and scored 12 goals.

Williams wasn't a regular in Neil Harris' first full season in charge, but has become one of Millwall's most important players.

"Shaun Williams just needs to get himself back on the football pitch," Harris said. "He's been a big player for me for the last two-and-a-half years since I took over. He's been great in the dressing room and he's a really good bloke. He's shown his quality in a Millwall shirt.

"He has worked so hard in the last ten weeks to get fit and is now back into full training. He just needs to get himself back to full fitness and then we see what happens over the Christmas and new year period."
