Gary Rowett makes transfer admission over Millwall player

Published

on

Millwall boss Gary Rowett has admitted to the South London Press that he expects midfielder Ben Thompson to weigh up his options when the January transfer window opens. 

The 26-year-old has featured on just four occasions for the Lions this term, with three of those appearances coming in the Carabao Cup.

This fact has therefore left questions marks over his long term future at the Den as he continues to be overlooked by his manager at the South London club.

Now Rowett has opened up on the situation involving Thompson, as he stated the following recently:

“Until January he will continue to be available for selection for the first team. If January comes around and he hasn’t played or featured much then I’m sure he’ll be no different – he will want to play football.

“I’d be more worried if a player was sat there and didn’t want to play or get in the first-team. Those wouldn’t be the right attributes.

“Thommo has shown all the right things and should be commended for that.”

Quiz: Have any of these 30-ex Millwall players ever played abroad?

Has Jimmy Abdou ever played abroad in his career - Yes or no?

Thompson has been training and playing with the club’s under-23 side in order to keep his fitness up and will surely be hoping for a solution in the new year.

The midfielder is set to see his current contract expire at the Den next summer.

The Verdict 

This is a very difficult situation for Thompson to be in, especially as he has been with the club for such a long time.

You have to commend his professionalism as it can’t be easy turning out for the youth side every week.

There are sure to be plenty of clubs both in and around the Sky Bet Championship that would see signing him as a good opportunity and there is sure to be interest.

It will be intriguing to see where he ends up if he does leave as expected.
