Millwall are looking to sign 24-year-old defender Jermaine Grandison who is still training with Shrewsbury Town despite being out-of-contract, according to the Daily Mirror’s John Cross.

The Shropshire club are looking at ways in which they could finance contracts for Grandison and striker Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro. According to the Shropshire Star, there is a 50/50 chance that Shrewsbury would be able to sign them in time for Saturday’s season opener against Millwall.
Salop are looking at the sale of Josh Ginnelly as a way to secure the pair’s signatures, but Chief Executive Matt Williams told the Shropshire Star that “the amount Burnley are offering now wouldn’t get anywhere near what we need to keep the two out-of-contract lads. Even if we get to an acceptable offer, that still won’t fund both players.
“So I’d say it’s 50-50 to get them done by the Millwall game.”
Grandison has made a total of 147 appearances during his time at Shrewsbury, scoring 5 and assisting 6.
Shrewsbury face Millwall at the Greenhous Meadow on Saturday, with both sides taking a keen interest in Jermaine Grandison should he play.
