Millwall striker Lee Gregory has decided to call time on his career at the Den following five seasons at the club, opting for a move to Stoke City amid interest from both Derby County and Sheffield United, according to the print edition of the Daily Mail (May 16, Page 56).
Gregory, 30, has been a regular or Neil Harris this season scoring 12 goals and making seven assists in 47 appearances in all competitions this season.
So was Gregory right to reject Derby and Sheffield United in favour of a move to Stoke City?
“He could be.
“He’s likely guaranteed more minutes with Stoke but it seems as though he’s turned down a Premier League shot which I find interesting.
“He clearly believes in what Stoke are trying to do so fair play to him.”
“It depends why he’s done it.
“If he has done it because he does not think he will get to play much at either club then yes, fair play to him.
“But if he thinks he can get an offer from a bigger club then he will be sorely disappointed.”
“He’s not a Premier League player for a start, so that rules out United.
“Derby have plenty of forwards and I think he’d struggle for games.
“At Stoke he can get games and be effective. They need someone like him, robust and willing to put himself about.
“It’s a good fit.”
