Millwall winger quiet on possibility of new deal

MILLWALL players who are set to be out of contract next summer are not discussing the possibility of extensions or new deals as they focus on getting the club up the Championship table.

Half of Millwall’s current 22-man first-team squad signed deals until next summer.

Steve Morison recently told NewsAtDen that he has yet to speak to the club over a new deal but those talks will take place over the coming months.

It is set to be a busy period for boss Neil Harris and chief executive Steve Kavanagh as they negotiate with players and their representatives.

Some of those expiring contracts will also contain options and trigger clauses, though those of Morison and strike partner Lee Gregory do not. Millwall also offer only one-year deals to players over 30. Gregory turned 30 in August and if he wants long-term security he may have to move away, unless the club reverse their current policy.

Ferguson recently regained his first-team place after a long period out of the selection picture, but doesn’t want to talk about his future.

“I haven’t even thought about it, to be honest,” he said. “The main focus is just to try and help the team get up the table.

“All that will be left until later. I’ve never once talked about it, I haven’t spoken about it with the manager.

“I’m chilled about it.”
