Millwall have offered defender Danny McNamara a new contract, according to the South London Press.
McNamara has impressed during his recent loan spell at Scottish Premiership side St Johnstone, with the same paper revealing last Tuesday that the Republic of Ireland U21 right-back was expected to be recalled by Millwall in January.
The 22-year-old’s deal in SE16 was set to expire at the end of the season, but McNamara appears firmly in Gary Rowett’s plans moving forward and will therefore extend his stay at the club.
McNamara came through the ranks at The Den, but hasn’t made a first-team competitive appearance for Millwall, and has enjoyed successful loan stints at both Newport County last season and St Johnstone during the first-half of the current campaign under the guidance Callum Davidson.

Having featured heavily north of the border this term, the youngster has been rewarded, and is set to return to the Lions once the January window re-opens in the coming days.
This is an excellent piece of business by Millwall.
Having seen Jason McCarthy return to Wycombe in the summer, following a brief spell at The Den, Mahlon Romeo has been the Lions’ only recognised right-back in the squad.
But instead of going out and adding to his squad, the return of McNamara is financially a smart move, whilst the youngster will be hungry to prove his worth and therefore should provide stiff competition for Romeo once he joins up with the squad when he loan move in Scotland is over.
