Millwall's Moro on potential contract talks

STEVE Morison expects talks with Millwall over his future at some point this season – but not until after the Lions have improved their league results.   

Morison, 35, is out of contract at the end of the season, and, in contrast to the two previous seasons, he does not have a clause to activate an extension.

Lions skipper Morison is one of a number of players out of contract next summer. The list also includes Lee Gregory, Shane Ferguson, Byron Webster, Conor McLaughlin, Jordan Archer, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Tom Elliott and David Martin.

That will entail a lot of decisions and negotiations in the coming months, including whether to extend Morison’s Millwall career beyond his 36th birthday.

Millwall currently only give one-year deals to players over the age of 30.

Morison joined Millwall for a third spell in the summer of 2015, and has played 166 times with Neil Harris in charge. He has made a total of 303 appearances for the club.

Millwall haven’t won at home in the league since August 18. Morison was asked by the News when he expects to hear about the club’s intentions and said: “Whenever the football club wants to have that conversation.”

He added: “All I can do is keep playing, keep plugging away. I’m sure no one is going to want to have that kind of conversation until we start winning games of football.”
