Millwall midfielder determined to win new deal

RYAN Tunnicliffe hopes to do enough to impress Neil Harris to earn a new deal with Millwall.

Tunnicliffe signed a two-year contract when he joined on a free transfer in the summer of 2016.

The former Manchester United and Fulham midfielder has his chance of regular starts with Shaun Williams out injured until early next year.

Tunnicliffe has started 24 league games for Millwall, finding himself third-choice midfielder behind Williams and George Saville, and then club-record signing Ryan Leonard.

Tunnicliffe would like to extend his Lions stay, but admits some of it is out of his hands.

“It’s up to the manager. It’s coming to six months left after Christmas and all I can do when I’ve got this chance is perform,” Tunnicliffe said.

“Hopefully I’ll do enough in his eyes that he’ll want to keep me around.

“There’s a lot of football to be played from now until the end of the season. First and foremost I can only look after myself and my performances.

“It doesn’t really matter what I think, if the gaffer doesn’t want me I don’t have a decision to make.

“I need to perform and make sure he wants to give me a new deal.”
