1 in, 2 out: The Millwall January transfer business that could happen

Published

on

Millwall will be hoping for a productive January window as they look to push on and finish in the top six this season.

A 3-2 defeat to Bristol City yesterday highlighted how frustrating the Lions can be, as they came from behind to take the lead before conceding twice in the last 17 minutes to suffer defeat.

The focus will switch to the exciting game against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup but boss Gary Rowett will want to get some business done in the market.

It may be a busy month for the Londoners and here we look at some deals that could get done…

In: Uche Ikpeazu

A priority for Millwall this month has to be a striker and they have been linked with Middlesbrough’s Ikpeazu.

The target man is sure to be available as he has struggled for game time since Chris Wilder’s appointment and Boro have since brought in Aaron Connolly and are expected to add another number nine.

Whether Ikpeazu can solve the Lions’ goalscoring issues is open to debate but he will at least be a major handful with his physicality and link up play.

Out: Ben Thompson

The midfielder is out of contract in the summer and it’s inevitable he will depart then if he doesn’t go this month.

However, with the 26-year-old completely out of favour under Rowett, you would imagine that a move in January would suit all parties as Thompson simply isn’t needed right now.

It will be shame for the player that his time at The Den could end like this but he needs to get back playing somewhere.

Were each of these 20 former Millwall players left or right footed?

Out: Jed Wallace

Another who is out of contract in the summer is Jed Wallace, but Millwall will be desperate to keep him.

With the play-offs still in reach, you would expect the Lions to resist any offer for their key man but money talks and the hierarchy may not want to let him run his deal down and leave on a free.

So, this is one to monitor and if a decent offer comes up they may decide to accept and reinvest.
