Fellow League One side Portsmouth were also believed to be keen on landing him as well, as reported by Football Insider.

Ferguson is now available on a free transfer and it will be interesting to see if Charlton or Pompey rekindle their interest from the past winter.

He joined Millwall in 2016 and has since made 193 appearances in all competitions for the Lions, chipping in with 12 goals.

The Northern Ireland international played a key role in their promotion from League One under Neil Harris and has helped the London club establish themselves in the Championship over the past few seasons.
