Neil Harris was adamant there will be new faces at the club this January but was confident that the players returning from loan will be assets to the club.

Millwall have been linked with a number of players in early January but so far Alex Pearce, who made his debut in the 2-1 FA Cup third round win over Hull City, has been the only new addition.

Harris, however is confident there will be more, especially in one position.

“Whether its next week or the following week there will be movement coming in for sure,” said Harris.

“We need to add to the squad. If we have to be creative to bring a player in, then so be it.

“We need to add to add a fresh face certainly to the attacking line up.”

Loan Recalls?

Millwall have re-called four of their players from their loan spells, but the manager conceded that they may end up back out on-loan.

“They come back to us because they’re our boys, great players, great lads and it thickens our squad up for the time being.

“It gives us an opportunity to asses the transfer window, ins and outs, if there’s players that needs to go out I’ve no problem with it.”

Harris championed the return of Ben Thompson who has been on a hugely successful loan spell with Kenny Jackett’s Portsmouth, and admitted he could’ve done with the midfielder during his club’s nine game winless streak.

“Ben will come back with a spring in his step.

“Top of League One and playing well. Ben is a super young player who’ll continue to grow and in my opinion will certainly captain this club in the future and could go all the way to the top level.

“We’ve missed Ben this season, around the training ground, changing room, and on the pitch, it sounds crazy because we’ve just won four games in a row, but he would’ve been a big player for us in that period (of nine winless games).”

One player who was recalled and looks set to stay with the club for the remainder of the season is 22-year-old Fred Onyedinma.

Having had a successful loan spell with Wycombe, Harris said:

“He’s back with us and looked unplayable in two days of training, he comes in to the squad for next week.”

Other players returning to The Den are Tom King from AFC Wimbledon and Sid Nelson from Swindon.

King will remain with the club until Amos’ injury has been assessed, whilst Nelson returns with a jarred knee and needs treatment, although Harris believes there is a chance the could return to Swindon for the second half of the season.

It was also confirmed that Byron Webster has left the club to join Scunthorpe.
