Lincoln City loan man to hold talks with parent club regarding future

Millwall boss Neil Harris has said they will hold ‘discussions’ with Alex Mitchell this summer regarding his future.

Millwall will see the defender return from his loan spell at Lincoln City in League One.

Mitchell, 22, made 41 appearances for the Imps in all competitions this season, 36 of which came in the league.

Harris has shared this update about his situation at The Den, as per a report by London News Online: “Alex has played a lot of football out on loan, so we will have to have some discussions with Alex over the summer to what next season looks like.

“Alex is a player I know from being a youngster, when I was at the club originally. He is a player I have tracked at various levels over the past couple of seasons.”

Millwall plans for Lincoln City loanee

Millwall have a big decision to make regarding the future of Mitchell. He still has another year left on his contract.

The centre-back could provide useful competition and depth to their defensive department ahead of the next campaign.

However, if they can’t offer him regular game time, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him depart on a permanent basis.

The Lions should try and get a fee for him in the upcoming window or next January to eradicate the risk of losing him for free in June 2025 when his deal expires if he isn’t part of their plans.

Mitchell has been on the books of his parent club for his whole career to date and rose up through their academy ranks.

He has played once for the first-team and has had temporary spells away at Bromley, Leyton Orient and St Johnstone.

Lincoln City came calling last summer and he has enjoyed plenty of minutes at the LNER Stadium this term.

The Imps missed out on the play-offs in the end though under ex-Leeds United coach Michael Skubala after their 2-0 loss at home to champions Portsmouth on the final day.

They will be looking to bounce back next year and have a big summer coming up on the transfer front.
