The 44-year-old has managed the Saddlers since 2011, when he was first appointed as a caretaker manager from the Head of Youth department following the sacking of Chris Hutchings.

Smith is currently the fourth longest serving manager in England, and has impressed during his time at the Saddlers.

Smith has led Walsall to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final this season, and has subsequently helped the club achieve sustainability and remain been debt free.

Millwall have begun searching for a new manager since sacking Ian Holloway in March and have been sticking with caretaker manager Neil Harris.

With just two games left this season, the Lions are four points adrift from safety and could be set to get relegated from Sky Bet Championship.

Smith told the Express and Star: “It’s the first I’ve heard of it, I’ve not heard anything and I’ve got a job to do here.”

Walsall are at 14th place in the Sky Bet League One standings with 56 points. They face Oldham Athletic on Saturday
