Sky Bet League One play-off winners Millwall have today revealed their retained list following promotion back into the Sky Bet Championship. A total of two squad players, including one long-serving individual, have been told that they are not to be offered new extensions.

In addition to this, Millwall manager Neil Harris wishes to keep a key midfielder on the books and as such has offered a new contract. Alongside that, the club legend remains locked in negotiations with three more player in the hope that they may stay at The Den.

Goalkeeper David Forde leaves after many years of service with the club. He played 339 times in a Millwall jersey and will go down as one of their best ever keepers. He ended last season out on loan at Portsmouth, who won the Sky Bet League Two title. There is every chance that could turn into a permanent deal. Also moving onto pastures new is full back Joe Martin. He played 67 times for the club, starting 22 matches last season.

Shaun Williams played almost every game in the promotion-winning campaign and Harris is keen to retain him for the step back into the Championship. His deal expires shortly but a deal has been offered. A fellow midfielder, Jimmy Abdou, is someone who remains in talks with Harris over his future, in addition to Shaun Cummings and Fred Onyedinma. Every other permanent member of the squad remains under contract for the forthcoming season.

Released: Joe Martin & David Forde.

Offered new contract: Shaun Williams.

In negotiations: Jimmy Abdou, Shaun Cummings & Fred Onyedinma.
