Millwall midfielder yet to have deal talks – as boss outlines thoughts on contracts

SHAUN Williams has yet to hold talks with Millwall over a potential new deal – and said he will keep "plugging away" in the meantime.

Williams, who turned 33 last month, is in the last year of his current deal. He will be six years at the club in January after joining from MK Dons.

Ireland international Williams has started both of Gary Rowett's matches in charge.

"There's been nothing yet," Williams said. "I just need to keep plugging away and see what happens."

Millwall manager Gary Rowett is not going to rush into decisions over players' contracts.

Rowett will assess the squad over a number of games and will meet with chief executive Steve Kavanagh as they decide on potential contract extensions and new deals.

"I need to sit down with the club and it will be up to Steve and the club how they view it from a financial perspective, which of course as a manager I'm not going to get involved in just yet without really knowing the structure and those players a little bit better.

"Until I have those conversations I'm not going to mislead with the wrong answer. Those things will probably be a little bit clearer in the next three or four weeks.

"To make those decisions you want to see those players in six, seven, eight games before you start to nail those ideas down."
