Millwall winger Tyler Burey is set to agree a new long-term contract with the Lions, with News at Den reporting that the youngster is close to securing fresh terms after impressing for the South London club.
Originally arriving at the New Den from AFC Wimbledon, Burey has risen through the club’s academy and has since gone on to play a part in eight first team games to date, underlining the faith that the club has in his ability.
Capable of playing on both the left and the right, the winger has really impressed in the game time that he has been afforded by Gary Rowett and now looks set to commit his long-term future to the club by signing new terms.
The 20-year-old first progressed into senior football via Wimbledon’s academy and went on to appear just three times for the Dons before departing for Millwall after rejecting a contract offer from the Plough Lane club, with the two sides eventually agreeing on a compensation package for the then teenager.
Did these 15 former Millwall players leave for a higher or lower fee than they arrived for?
Burey made his full debut for the Lions earlier this season away at Boreham Wood in the FA Cup.
I saw a lot of Burey during his time at Wimbledon and I have to admit that during that period I did not believe he was good enough to play regularly at Football League level.
Since leaving the Dons however he has clearly made a good career choice as we are really starting to see him uncover his obvious potential at Millwall, as shown by their faith in handing him a new contract.
Wimbledon’s loss is certainly their gain and it wouldn’t shock me if he does indeed become a regular for the Lions somewhere down the line.
He’s still only 20 and will have to be patient but for me the signs are that Millwall have one hell of a player on their hands and he could be in line for a bright future in South London and beyond.
