Millwall head coach Neil Harris has told London News Online that it is unlikely that they will be signing Norwich City’s Ben Marshall despite recent links.
Marshall knows Millwall well after playing on loan at the club last season, impressing as the Lions came very close to claiming a spot in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs. But while Millwall did try and sign him in the summer and make that deal permanent, Marshall would end up turning that move down and instead headed to Norwich.
But while the Canaries have been doing very well and are in the thick of the race for promotion, Marshall has not been part of it. He has only made four starts for the Norfolk club and this has led to rumours that he will be leaving in the January transfer window with one report saying Millwall could be interested.
But Millwall manager Harris has said that they probably won’t be going in for him, saying that they will be concentrating on improving other parts of the squad.
He said: “Ben was fantastic for us last season,”
“He brought a wealth of Championship experience and quality as well to the squad – plus personality in the changing room.”
“He is a player we tried to sign in the summer but couldn’t get because Norwich have got bigger finances.”
“He is a player and person I admire. But I think at the moment that scoring goals and creating chances is not a problem – that is keeping the ball out of the net at the other end.”
“There have been four or five away games where we have gone and dominated – Forest, Reading, Norwich and Preston – and not got the points.”
“We are in the top three for creating chances in the division.”
