Millwall have seen a permanent offer for midfielder Jayson Molumby turned away by Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion, in what would have been a record-breaking transfer for the Lions.
The Bermondsey club have not had things go their way this season as much as they would have liked, with them 12 points off of the play-off places in the Sky Bet Championship.
Nonetheless, Gary Rowett will feel his men can pick things up in the second-half of the season and it’s clear he’d like Molumby to be a part of that, and then some.
Indeed, as per the South London Press, the Lions have made a bid for the Irish midfielder for a figure – though undisclosed – that would have broken their record for a fee paid for a signing.
The Seagulls, however, do not want to sell him – though they remain open to a loan deal if a club is interested in that.
Molumby showed last season at The New Den the sort of player he is and, naturally, Millwall want to bring him back to the club.
It appears as though Brighton aren’t interested in losing him permanently, though, and so it remains to be seen if the Lions increase their bid, make a loan offer, or switch targets altogether.
