Millwall are set to secure the signing of George Saville from Sky Bet Championship rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers, reports South London Press.
Saville does not feature in Nuno Espirito Santo’s plans for the 2017/18 campaign, and appears to have played his last game for Wolves, ending a three-year association with the Molineux club.
The 24-year old joined Wolves from Chelsea ahead of the 2014/15 campaign, and the midfielder has gone on to make 57 senior appearances for the club in three seasons, but is now expected to seek a new challenge at Millwall.
Saville has had two previous loan spells at the Den, with the most recent of those coming in 2015, when the midfielder made 15 appearances for the Lions over six-months.
Saville will be hopeful of putting a frustrating 2016/17 campaign behind him when he moves to Millwall, having made just 24 league appearances for Wolves in the Championship last season.
Perhaps Saville’s biggest contribution last season came in the FA Cup, when he featured in Wolves’ run to the fifth-round, where they suffered a defeat to Chelsea.
Saville’s teammate, Jed Wallace, could also follow him to London in the coming weeks, with Millwall and Wolves agreeing a permanent deal for the winger, who has also spent time on-loan at the Den in recent years.
Millwall fans… Are you pleased to hear Saville is set to re-sign for your club? Let us know your thoughts!
