Millwall manager Neil Harris is looking to London rivals Queens Park Rangers, in the search for a striker to give the Lions some much needed goals, with Matt Smith the player in Harris’ sights according to West London Sport.
Though Smith has made 23 appearances for Rangers only two of those have been starts, and the 29-year-old has become frustrated by his lack of football.
But could the potential arrival of Smith at the New Den, spell the end for veteran striker Steve Morison who only has a single goal to his name in 28 appearances this season?
So if Smith arrives does that close the door on a new deal for Morison?
“Never say never, but I’d be surprised.
“The Millwall faithful seem to have been growing increasingly frustrated with the veteran striker for a while now and I suspect Harris has as well.
“Considering Smith is a very similar player, I would expect that to be it for Morrison.”
“It could do, but just because one signs it doesn’t mean the other goes.
“It might be to push for competition, to give them something to fight for between themselves.
“Morison’s goals haven’t flowed freely this season though, have they?”
“I don’t think Steve Morison will get a new deal, to be honest.
“But with Tom Elliott younger and Morison’s career coming towards an end, it could be a loan deal they look to make permanent.
“Matt Smith would be a great option, and he’s a player that Millwall have chased for almost two years.
“If the QPR man comes in and does well and a permanent move is viable, I can see it being the end of Morison at The Den and possibly an end to his career.”
