2 Milwall players who you’d imagine will want to leave the Den this summer for pastures new

Published

With the season drawing to a close, Millwall can now start to think about the summer transfer window.

Sitting ninth in the table, 13 points off the play-offs with five games to play, it seems clear that the club can start thinking about building a squad to look to challenge for a top-six spot in the Championship next season.

However, while the club themselves may be thinking about who they might be able to bring in this summer, there may be certain members of Millwall’s playing squad, who are in fact starting to think about a potential departure from The Den this summer.

Here, we’ve taken a look at two players who may well be keen to leave Millwall at the end of the season, in order to take their careers in a different direction.

Shaun Williams

At 34-years-old, Williams is approaching the latter stages of his career, so you feel he may want to get as much regular first-team football as possible in the next few years.

That is something he may struggle to do at The Den, given he has started just 12 league games for Gary Rowett’s side this season, and the competition for places is only likely to increase further with potential new arrivals in the summer window.

As a result, now could be a good time for the midfielder to start thinking about a potential move elsewhere for next season – with his experience likely to make him an appealing target for certain – with his current contract at Millwall set to expire at the end of this season.

Are these 22 Millwall shirt facts true or false?

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

It is probably fair to say that things haven’t quite worked out for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson since his move from Reading to Millwall during the summer of 2019.

Since joining the Lions, the striker has scored just seven goals in 73 appearances in all competitions for the club, and only once in the league this season, which can only be described as a disappointing record for someone in his position.

With that in mind, you wonder whether Bodvarsson could be tempted to make a move elsewhere in the summer, in the hope that a change of club and scenery could help kick-start his career again, and with his contract at The Den entering its final 12 months, Millwall could be open to that as well, to ensure they receive some funds for him while they still can.
