Millwall look to have an exciting summer ahead, with Gary Rowett’s side looking to break their transfer record.
Millwall boss Rowett revealed earlier this week that his side have placed two transfer bids for potential new players so far this summer, both of which surpass the club’s current £1.5million transfer record.
He told London News Online:
“We’ve put two bids at the moment that would probably be bigger than our record signing. It shows where we are. What we don’t want to do is not use that money wisely because it is a lot of money.”
Who those offers might be for though remains to be seen.
Millwall though have been linked with a handful of potential new signings recently, one of them being Oli Burke.
A recent report has revealed that Millwall and Sheffield United are in talks over a possible permanent deal for Burke, who spent the second half of last season on loan with the Lions.
Elsewhere, it’s said that Millwall have retained an interest in Newcastle United youngster Elliot Anderson.
The Scotland U21 international scored seven and assisted six during his 21 League Two outings for Bristol Rovers during the second half of last season, helping to fire Joey Barton’s side towards promotion.
And speaking on Anderson after a 1-0 win over Colchester United back in March, Bristol Rovers boss Joey Barton said (via News Chain):
“Elliot has been brilliant for us from the first day we brought him in.
“I would have paid to watch him tonight, he was that good. He is growing into the shirt and his goal capped an outstanding performance.
“Elliot is a huge talent. He excites you and tonight he showed a different gear to be the stand-out player on the pitch.”
Lastly, Millwall have been added to the list of Championship sides keen on signing AFC Wimbledon’s Jack Rudoni this summer.
Bristol City, Huddersfield Town and Sunderland have all already had seven-figure bids for Rudoni rejected, with Sunderland and Huddersfield set for further talks.
It could be a big summer for Millwall if they can bring in some talented new signings. Fans will be excited to hear about these club record offers being placed and if they sign on, and slot straight into Rowett’s Millwall side, then the Lions could be dark horses once again next season.
