Millwall are on a run of four wins in four in all competition ahead of the visit of Blackburn Rovers this weekend, with the Lions looking to pull away from the Championship relegation zone that they are hovering above.
With form on the pitch on the up, manager Neil Harris is looking to tie-down his in-form players with a new contract on the cards for 27-year-old winger Shane Ferguson, as reported in the South London Press & Mercury.
The former Newcastle player has been in good form in recent months and with his contract expiring in the summer, Harris hopes to tie up a new deal soon.
So is a new contract for Ferguson a good move for Millwall?
“This is fantastic news – Shane Ferguson has arguably been Millwall’s player of the season so far.
“I have never seen one player so out of favour at a club and then return to form in such spectacular style.
“He wasn’t being selected for the matchday squad at the end of last season in the final few months, and the same at the start of the campaign too.
“But when given his chance he took it with both hands and is now on the crest of a wave.
“Ferguson’s performances since coming back into the team have been nothing short of faultless.
“It’s the right move for Neil Harris to tie down the Northern Irishman after the recent impact he has had.”
“It’s the best news possible for Millwall.
“Ferguson has been a rare bright spark for Neil Harris’ side this season in what has been a disappointing league campaign to date.
“With Ferguson signing a new deal, he’ll be key to keeping his side in the Championship this season, after a sluggish first-half of this season.”
“This is a good move by Millwall.
“He’s been an impressive figure for the Lions so far this season, and it’s a wise move to enter talks to secure a new deal for him.
“He’ll be influential in Millwall’s fight to avoid the drop to League One.”
