Millwall may break their transfer record to sign Wolves’ Ben Marshall according to a report from Sky Sports News.
With Marshall struggling to get a first team spot in the Wolves team, he was sent out on loan in January and would end up signing for Millwall. This move would end up being a fantastic thing for both parties as Marshall recaptured the form that made him a big name in the Sky Bet Championship and he helped push the Lions further up the table and almost got them an unlikely spot in the play-offs.
After his loan ended, Marshall returned to Wolves but his chances of a first team spot looks even more unlikely. In his absence the Black Country club sealed their promotion to the Premier League and they are making no bones about spending a lot of money to make sure they are ready for the top tier. This pushes Marshall even further away from the first team and this means Wolves are willing to sell him this summer.
But while Millwall are interested in signing Marshall, they may have to break their transfer record to sign him. Even though Wolves are happy to sell the former Stoke City winger, they want to recoup most of the £1.2m fee they paid for him at the start of 2017. And with Millwall’s transfer record being when they signed Paul Goddard for £800K from Derby County back in 1989, it may well be the case that they have to break that to make sure Marshall is one of their players next season.
