2 players Millwall should look to loan out by September 2nd

Millwall have made a solid start to the 2019/20 campaign under manager Neil Harris and will be looking to secure a positive result when they face Hull City tomorrow at The Den.

Currently 10th in the Championship standings, the Lions could move into the top-six with a handsome victory over the Tigers.

Although Millwall can longer bolster their squad through purchasing players due to the fact that the summer transfer window closed for second-tier sides earlier this month, they can still sanction outgoings between now and September 2nd.

Considering that Harris currently has 23 senior players at his disposal, he may have to allow a number of individuals to leave in order for them to have a chance of playing regular first-team football.

Keeping this in mind, here are two players who we think the Millwall boss should consider loaning out in the coming days…

Tom Elliott

Despite featuring on 38 occasions for Millwall last season in all competitions, Tom Elliott has recently fallen below the likes of Matt Smith and Tom Bradshaw in the pecking order at The Den.

The forward was set to join Ipswich Town earlier this summer before picking up an injury (via the East Anglian Daily Times) but is now full fit and thus could be the subject of considerable interest over the weekend from lower league sides.

Championship Picks

Having made just one appearance during the current campaign, Elliott may benefit from some time away from the Lions.

Therefore, if the 28-year-old does want to make a temporary exit from the club, Harris should consider listening to loan offers.

George Alexander

A product of Millwall’s youth system, George Alexander has experienced an impressive start to the season with the club’s Under-23 side.

On the scoresheet in their most recent clash with Nottingham Forest, the forward will unquestionably be wanting to break into the senior side in the not too distant future.

However, given that Harris currently has a plethora of options to choose from up-front, it may be worth loaning Alexander out as doing so could be highly beneficial for the Lions.

Whereas the standard of youth football is improving year-on-year, it could be argued that the forward will learn a great deal more from playing regularly in League One or League Two.
