Millwall will join the Championship this season after emerging unscathed from the end of season play-offs, and Neil Harris’ side will anticipate another season of second tier football.
Many will write Millwall off as the weakest team in the division after coming up as play-off winners, and Harris hasn’t done much this summer to improve on the squad that navigated the end of season shoot out.
Improvements will be needed in the coming weeks if the Lions are to be competitive in the division, and depth and quality must be added in a number of positions before the season kicks off next month.
One man Harris could turn to to add depth to the defence is Southampton youngster Sam McQueen, who broke into the first team at St Mary’s last season and impressed with a series of solid performances.
The Saints will unfortunately be unable to offer the player consistent first team exposure next season, and new boss Mauricio Pellegrino will undoubtedly begin to bring his own men into the club in the coming weeks, possibly pushing McQueen further down the pecking order.
A season with Millwall in the Championship could be the making of the 22-year-old, who would return to the south coast with a new found wealth of experience ready to challenge for the starting left back berth.
Adding McQueen to his squad would be a real coup for Harris, and the promise of first-team football at an extremely competitive level may be too much for the player to resist.
