Millwall are ready to break their transfer record to land Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ben Marshall, according to The Mirror’s Live Transfer Blog [Friday 8th June, 05:12AM].
Wolves winger Marshall is surplus to requirements at Molineux following their promotion to the Premier League but that does not mean they will let him go on the cheap.
Neil Harris is prepared to become the first manager in Millwall’s history to splash a seven figure transfer fee on a player.
Marshall spent the latter half of last season on loan at Millwall, where he thrived and was a central figure in their rapid rise up the league table towards play-off contention.
The South London club eventually missed out on a spot in the top six but the 27-year-old’s contribution of three goals and five assists in 16 games made him a fans’ favourite at the New Den.
Millwall are now ready to press ahead and bring the former England under-21 international back to the club in a permanent deal.
Marshall is definitely worth the sizeable outlay because he was in scintillating form for the Lions last season and was such a crucial player on the wing.
Not only that but the former Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers man provides so much experience at Championship level but he is not old and he is now in the prime of his career.
And his other selling point is his versatility; Marshall can fill in at right-back or central midfield if Millwall desperately need him to.
