Millwall chief Neil Harris is hoping that they can complete another outfield signing before their midweek friendly against Southend United.

With a host of first team players being released at the end of last season, Harris has been looking to bolster his squad with some fresh faces this season.

The Lions have already added Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, Matt Smith, Connor Mahoney, Alex Pearce and Frank Fielding to their ranks but Harris explained that they are still on the hunt for at least three more players.

The national press have linked Millwall with numerous goalkeepers in the past week, with Scott Carson of Derby County being the latest.

However, Harris has denied the impression the Lions are close to signing a shot stopper.

“We are chasing another goalkeeper, but more likely an outfield player will be coming in before a goalkeeper.” Harris explained.

When asked whether the deal would be completed before Wednesday’s fixture against Southend, the Lions boss added:

“Possibly, we are very close to one and we are working hard on a second one. Things are moving , I want three more players. One goalkeeper and two more boys.”

The outfield positions Millwall are looking to add are central midfield and right back after James Brown picked up a long-term injury in preseason training.

“I really wanted James Brown to fight for that position with Mahlon. Danny Mac is not ready to play first team football for us he needs to go on loan and develop he has got good potential.

“James Brown has picked up a nasty injury and will be out for four month so we definitely need to strengthen that area.”
