Wright still waiting to hear on Millwall loan exit
MILLWALL boss Steve Lomas has revealed there has been very little interest so far in out of favour midfielder Josh Wright.
Wright’s sole involvement in the first team since Lomas’ arrival this summer has been a solitary start on the opening day against Yeovil and a substitute appearance in the League Cup win over Wimbledon three days later.
Since then he has been frozen out and although his name has been widely circulated to potential suitors, Wright is seemingly no closer to finding a new club.
“We’ve said Josh is available for loan but nobody has come in yet apart from a few tentative enquiries,” said Lomas.
When pressed on what level of club those initial phone calls had come from, Lomas was reluctant to be drawn.
“It’s not really for me to tell him where to go to,” the Lions chief told News Shopper.
Meanwhile, Lomas says it is down to Bolton now whether they want to keep hold of Liam Feeney at The Reebok.
The 26-year-old has played three times for the Trotters since joining the Lions’ Championship rivals on loan last month and is available for one more game – Saturday’s clash with Sheffield Wednesday – before Lomas can draft the winger back to The Den.
Millwall are keen for Dougie Freedman to commit to buying Feeney in January once the window opens again, but it all depends on what Bolton decide to do next.
“We had an agreement set up before he went,” said Lomas.
“There is a 28-day call back as well, so this will be his last game.
“Hopefully after that it will all become clearer.
“It isn’t a case of me hoping he goes there because at the end of the day the reason we let Liam go out on loan was to get some games as he was getting frustrated.
“In the meantime we didn’t expect James Henry to want to go to Wolves but once Kenny Jackett came in that was it, he was desperate to go.
“Where we are at with Liam Feeney is we will wait and see what Bolton have to say, but as far as I’m concerned at the minute he is coming back after the next game.”
One man desperate to find out where Feeney is heading is Stephen Hunt, who is currently on trial at The Den from Wolves.
“We’ve had Stephen in to have a look at him,” added Lomas.
“But until we know what is happening with Liam Feeney then we will have to wait and see.”
